Hillary Clinton might be about to run for office, so that means rumors of her husband cheating are reappearing right on schedule. The latest scuttlebutt comes courtesy of a new book about Secret Service agents called The First Family Detail: Secret Service Agents Reveal the Hidden Lives of Presidents.
