    I don't agree with all of his ideas, but I think he'll make an excellent president. I think that his popularity is so overwhelming right now, it's on the level of JFK, RFK, Pope John Paul II, MLK and Reagan. What is the one thing each of those have in common? Assasination attemps. Some successful. Some not. I really, really hope the secret service does its job to the best if not better than it is capable of. If you think the stock market went down when the bailout bill failed, the market is 100% controlled by speculators right now it would PLUNGE if Obama was killed. Not to mention riots in many cities and neighborhoods and a bigger Washington insider than McCain himself would be at the helm, running our country. Most importantly, he has a wife and two little girls who adore him. I fear for his family and I fear for this country and I fear for the world if Obama is killed. May God protect him and his family.

    The secret service is about as political as the Marine Corps. They are trained to do a job and they will do it. Nobody wants to be the one that let the President take a bullet.

    No one that is sane wants the Presdient of the US assassinated.

    Bush may have dodged a bullet because of who would succeed him.

    That might be the case with Obama as well. NO ONE wants Biden at the helm.

    I do however think some stupid racist SOB will at least try. Idiots like that are so consumed with hatred they never foresee the consequences of their actions.

    A member of a racist organization assassinating Obama would GUARANTEE the death of that organization and probably any similar organizations.

    Biden would be President and he is anti-gun. He could get a lot of gun control mileage out of the hysteria that followed a Presidential assassination.

    I didn't vote for him. I hope he succeeds in doing what's best for all of us. And I damned-sure don't want to see ANYONE assassinated for political and or racial hatred. Two very STUPID reason to take a human life.

    After that shoe throwing incident, my faith in the Secret Service is somewhat shaken.


    I'm positive they are non-partisan, but are they as competent as they need to be to react in milli-seconds.
