Obama Receives Early Secret Service Protection

Illinois senator and U.S. presidential candidate Barack Obama has already been placed under Secret Service protection. With eighteen months before the 2008 election, this is the earliest a candidate has ever received a Secret Service detail.

It is not currently known if the early security is being provided because of a specific threat or merely because Obama draws such huge crowds to his political rallies — and is therefore more likely than other candidates to be put in danger.
