Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama has been placed under secret service protection.
The decision is based on general concerns about the Illinois democrat's safety and not a direct threat. Several factors have raised concerns including racist chatter on white supremacist web sites. It's the earliest a presidential candidate has ever been given a secret service detail.
However, Obama's rival for the Democratic nomination, Hillary Clinton, has secret service protection because she's a former first lady.
