Can't say I blame you on that one. That is a straight forward, easily identifiable question. Sharing classified information with someone who's not cleared is what Petraeus was convicted of.

She's very evasive. Also, has anyone else noticed how much gold she has on? She has a thick gold bracelet on, a gold watch, a couple of gold rings, a gold chain around her neck and two fat gold earings. Even Mr T doesn't wear that much bling.

I learned a lot from a sales guy I worked with. We went to visit a client in Chicago - they were a truck parts wholesale buying group; all the execs were former truckers. I was waiting for my boss (sales guy) to pick me up at the airport, and he finally showed up in a Ford pickup. When I got in he apologized for the delay, but he had to get a different car at the rental place.

"You asked for a pickup?" I asked, startled.
"Of course" he replied, "we're going to visit an American truck parts group. I'm going to show up driving an American truck."

I know this sounds cheesy as hell, but in the years since I have absolutely seen indications that this kind of thing really makes a difference. Customers may not realize they notice, but they do.

Anyway, the thing that reminded me of him - he also pointed out to me on one trip that he never wears his rolex to meet with them - when blue collar guys are paying your bills, you don't wear Armani suits and a ten-thousand-dollar watch.
