No, but when you speak with a press that can't understand simple things, would you expect her to explain how encryption and security work? Didn't she live with a highly placed government official? Is it unreasonable to expect that personalized security as provided to a POTUS might be better than government provided security? Of course her talking points with the press are complete and total bullshit. That's how it works. You give them amusing anecdotes, and they put you on TV. This helps couch potatoes from Ann Arbor to Anaheim decide if they like your taste in clothes, or the really smart ones to see if they think you have a sense of humor or a decent stylist.

In this country, it involves elections and policy and more elections and lobbying and some more elections and discussions with elected officials and more elections and an electorate getting involved and expressing itself and that means learning what is going on which involves being capable of comprehending it and it is simply easier for most people here to make the compromise of sticking their head in the sand and pretending everything is fine because they have not been hauled off to Gitmo or rendered to Bosnia for enhanced interrogation. But the revolution or war you allude to is also popular with some people, mostly right wing congress people.
