Adding to this, the Secret Service spokesman originally gave no indication that
the "blow up" statement was made.  Initially, it was reported that the volume
and tone of her !!voice!! were identified as the threat.  Now, a few days
later, we get an expansion of the story.  Curious, as all things Clinton seem
to be...

To Susan, sorry I snapped at you.  I think it's a serious matter when someone
accosts the POTUS, and gravely serious if a threat is made.  I'm not partisan
on this and I don't take it lightly.

Saying ' you should have been' is different than saying   'I will'
or impling a future event.   Can you threaten someone by saying
I wish you had been there, or you should have been?  Doesn't
seem like a threat in my book, but hay, I'am in favor of a flat tax.
