Q Thank you very much. Two questions. This morning a spokesman for the Secret Service told me that to be an agent you have to have a Bachelor’s degree, three years in law enforcement, and undergo a complete background check. When I asked if the applicant had any record of association with terrorists, I was told that would not be tolerated. And my first question is, is that the White House Press Office’s understanding of the qualifications required to be a Secret Service agent?
MS. PERINO: I have never spent time to go through the qualifications for Secret Service agents. I just trust that they know what they’re doing.
Q Right. And then considering the Obama-Ayers association –
MS. PERINO: Okay, that’s it. I’m not going to answer it.
Q — Senator Obama would not be qualified to be his own bodyguard.
MS. PERINO: I’m not going to answer it. Ann.
Q You’re not going to answer that?
