As per the New York times "Two young men who are believers in “white power” have been arrested and charged in Tennessee in what federal officials described as a plan to assassinate Senator Barack Obama and kill black children at a school." Check out the complete article at http://www.nytimes.com/2008/10/28/us/politics/28plot.html?_r=1&em&oref=slogin What are your views on this and what do you think will the impact of this be on the upcoming elections? Is there going to be a sympathy wave for Obama on this?

I think that there are plenty of radical supporters on both sides of the election and it seems like there are more than any previous election. I don't know that I would feel any particular sympathy for Obama and this is a situation that could potentially face either candidate. Unfortunately, this is a risk they take when they run for public office.

Hmm... that's true. Ironically this thing has come up days after Fidel Castro made the statement that he is surprised that Obama has not yet been assassinated!! Cheers! Ram
