Not with her.
Hillary Clinton was rushed by an animal rights protester during a campaign event in Iowa this week. The protester, who was a young woman, was taken down by Secret Service and carried out of the venue by police.

As you’ll see in the video below, Hillary turned this into a lame joke about people getting carried away.

Hillary Clinton Surrounded by Secret Service at Rally After Protester Breaks Past Barricades
Hillary Clinton was surrounded by Secret Service agents Wednesday afternoon after a protester broke past barricades separating the Democratic nominee from the audience at a campaign stop in Des Moines, Iowa.
Agents tackled the protester, who wore a shirt that read “Animal liberation now” and is a member of the animal rights organization Direct Action Everywhere, in a buffer zone surrounding the stage.
The protester, identified afterward as Kelsey Atkinson of Chicago, was then led out of the gymnasium where the rally was held.
It was the second time in less than a week that Clinton’s security detail came to her aid. Last Thursday in Las Vegas, a group of protesters also from Direct Action Everywhere attempted to enter the area around the stage, prompting agents to move to her side.
