    Clint Eastwood gives a tour-de-force performance in this tense political thriller that would make Alfred Hitchcock proud. Frank Horrigan (Eastwood) is about to retire from the Secret Service. He is overcome with guilt over not being able to prevent the assasination of John F. Kennedy while on duty in Dallas, Texas that day.Enter Mitch Leary (John Malkovich) a mentally ill former CIA operative who plans to assasinate the current president and plays a cruel cat and mouse game with Horrigan. Horrigan sees this as a chance to redeem himself by being assigned to protect the president during an election campaign.While on the campaign trial, Horrigan becomes romanitcall involved with the agent in charge of security Lilly Raines (Rene Russo). There is one embarrassing incident in Chicago that earns Horrigan a reprimand from the White House Chief of Staff (Fred Thompson) . Meanwhile, Leary is going through with his threat and leaves death and destruction everywhere he goes. Things come to a climax during a fund raiser in Los Angeles where Horrigan manages to finally "Take one for the President", and becomes a hero in the process.
