Excellent point. I bet it would be easier for the secret service to guard as well.
if you are the vice president of the united states, you need to have an advance team sent in days in advance to secure the area, also you need rooms
that are paid for but, unoccupied, for instance the rooms directly below and above the vice-president, communications room, secret service. they need
rooms set up for military communications in case the president is harmed, and the vice-president needs to communicate with the military services
around the world. there is alot more to this than biden walking up to the front desk, showing his credit card, and getting a room key.
if he were to use his plane, he would need that airspace shut down and a large perimeter completely covered by military and secret service while he
slept on the plane. how much would that cost in normal flight operations out of that airport, including the security ring?
by the way this is SOP with every president, and with Obama having a 400% increase in death threats against him, i'm sure it's more expensive for him,
than previous presidents.
