Is the status quo worth a mans life?

So I expect we've all read the recent news of the first plan to kill Obama.
Some people have already commented on the sad inevitability of such a story, and I expect it won't be the last such attempt.

What is it about America and shooting presidents?
Four of your presidents have already been assassinated, a further 6 were attempted but failed.

Why do they always pick up a gun rather than a voting ballot?
And if/and or/when Obama is elected does anyone think he'll last long enough to run for a second term?

Personally I believe McCaine will die a natural death prior to anything ever happen to Obama.

As for killing a president - yes, can be done if the right people but their heads together. The USA is not different than any other country.

So FB, the race is vote Obama or vote Palin...kinda blows the experience arguement out of the water don't you think..

America is somewhat different to most western powers on this issue, for instance the Uk has only ever assassinated one - a Spencer Perceval in 1812!
