Bush first ex-prez to face limit on Secret Service protection

President Bush's post-presidency is shaping up to be pretty comfortable, with a Dallas office, staffers, Secret Service protection, a travel budget, medical coverage and a $196,700 annual pension, all at taxpayers' expense. But Bush won't get one perk previous ex-presidents have received: lifetime Secret Service protection. Under new law, Bush's protection expires after 10 years.
