Decade at Bubba's

Watching the services for Gerald Ford and having been riveted by the beautiful services for Ronald Reagan I have a lingering thought that I can't shake.

It seems that U.S. Presidents have to start planning for their own funerals the day they take office and those plans are constantly reviewed and updated throughout their lifetime. The President gets to plan exactly how he or she will be presented to the mourning public every step of the way, which brings me back to my lingering thought.

Does anyone know if there are any limits? I have a vision of Bill Clinton being taken on a year long International farewell tour and doing it Barbra Streisand style. That is, having a "This Time I Really Mean Farewell" tour every couple of years for a decade or so. Say it ain't so Billy Jeff!
