He's pretty much the closest person to Obama, and he seems even creepier than Cheny.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Foster_Bennett This offers no insight into why he's so close to the President[-elect] throughout the ceremony, as he is the junior senator from that state and wields no special power in the Senate.

This man was also standing directly behind Obama at the parade review stand. Is he Renegade's personal Secret Service detail? Is there a weapon under that blankie?
