While it is possible that Obama may become the President of the United States, it is unlikely that he will be assassinated. While there may be threats the possibility of his assassination is much less likely than McCain finally dieing at the ripe old age of 120. With and considering the money McCain's wife Cindy has, they could technically cryogenically freeze McCain Alive so he would be in a suspended animation for quite some time! So Obama would have to set up a Cryogenic freezer with all this excess campaign money so as to perhaps prolong the actual payment of this bet past all of our lifetimes.

There is very least chance of Obama being assassinated. As can be seen, Obama has received great popularity among the people of US despite him being a black. And about McCain, I believe that his call would be a long time before  than Obama because of his old age. But of course, everyone's death is unpredictable. So age and popularity doesn't matter at all. But hypothetically speaking, I believe Obama can serve longer than McCain can...in accordance with the rule of nature. And Obama being a smoker doesn't quite change my opinion as there are thousands of people who are living up to 75-80 despite being chain-smokers. Anyways, my best wishes are with them...Hope they have a long healthy life! :)

The actuary professionals think McCain  could live two terms.  I am not an expert like they are, but with several bouts of a very deadly cancer, and the fact that his grandfather lived to be 61, and his father 70, I am not very optimistic that he would live to age 80.  In fact, I would be very surprised if he survived one full term.
A dermatologist commenting on his cancers said that McCain has not had 4 random occurrences of malignant melanoma, he has one recurring episode of malignant melanoma.
On the other hand, Obama has been a smoker for 25+ years (probably).  He has supposedly quit but the damage may be done already.  He could come down with lung cancer or fatal heart disease tomorrow.
Many are not voting for McCain because of these factors.

I suppose anyone can ask anything they like but I find this question out of line and unacceptable.  I can't imagine what you are thinking.  Isn't it bad enough we have to listen to all the hate filled lies and hate mongering in our emails and on TV ads?  Do we have to be bombarded with it on Blurtit too?  Oh I'm sure I'll hear from several who disagree.  Do us both a favor and can it.  I am responding to this question because I was specifically asked to.  I already accept that any and all of you have the right to disagree.  My response to this question is only my own opinion and I'm not trying to sway anyone.

I can see where your coming from but I could take this question a little more seriously in terms with there are many racist people out there whom I'm sure are ready to get at him if he is to become president. I am more than positive there are going to be multiple assassination attempts just for his skin color. Then theres McCain who is of old age and who knows when he'll go, point is, if either of them does die as our president, our vp is next in line, now who are we willing to run the country out of the vps? I can truly see where this can look as an offensive question but I can also see it as a question that strikes many, Its also a question of precaution, asking whats going to happen to our president and whats going to happen to the country

Dude, seriously chill. It's just the facts. One of the two will probably happen, so what if someone has the gall to say it? We hope they don't but people are idjits so they probably will. Mccain is old, (which isn't the fault of idjits, but...) and people are racist. It's the facts. They may be stupid, but they're still the facts. Stupidity is the lack of knowledge. Idiocy is having knowledge, but they're too lazy to use it. Face it the world is full of lazy bums. Not many people are, but the ones that are give the human population's reputation, not that it was too good in the first place. Get used to the facts. They don't change very often to the extent of my knowledge. Chill out about it. Nothing you can do.

Yes obama is winning over people but i don't think other will be ok with it i think the white majority of people will have a hard time coping with it great people in history black and white have died standing up for what they believe in its always going to be like this no matter what because we are all different and people don't like change, i agree you are over reacting, i think its great that obama got elected its what we need, i hope her does his 2 terms, but you can never stop ignorant stupid people, I'm white you know but it's almost inevitable,

Why does everyone insist that those who do not want Obama are motivated by race.. ? Everything is not a racist comment.. Our basic fears are.. 1) he lacks experience 2) he seems to be of a socialist bent 3) he tends to consort with domestic terrorists and haters (OF WHITes ) now thats racist. And for that matter he is not fully Black... So how do these things amount to racist? There are black men I would vote for and wish would run.. But He just isn't one of them..

I don't believe either has any more or less chance than any other president of dying while in office or being assassinated.  Anything can happen to anyone - and as for assassination.. There are always haters and crazy people in the world and they apply to haters of democrats and republicans.  Lets for the sake of not thinking EVERYONE is racist leave that out.. There are reasons on many sides to want to get rid of either.. With McCain there are those that feel with him an palin theyre rights to kill unborn babies may be taken.. And there are those that feel with Obama they will lose their freedom to defend themselves and many other freedoms.  Any person in such a high profile position runs the risk of some nut wanting to hurt them.. I don't think the odds are really any higher here than at any other time.

I do believe though that both would suffer from holding the position of commander and chief (especially the shape of the U.S the way it is) as seen by past presidents ..but(yes there is  a but) I believe McCain would handle it better by the proof of him handling being a prisoner of war and a cancer survivor...in other words I picture him as a ole bulldog ,once he gets into a situation he doesn't let go. In other words he is in it to win example: Win the war, fixing the economy,fixing these messed up business practices that caused this recession,and putting our government back on the right track .....but(yes another but)- "if" - it did happen(God forbid) look who is in the runner up position....the average Joe and the Alaskan beauty queen....funny-not funny?

I think that there are many that think Obama being black is a big deal. It is a complete and total non issue. And before I go any further, I am not going to make this a matter of my own personal politics. My issue with McCain is that not only is it statistically possible that he could die while in office but that Sarah Palin would then be President (ok, so maybe some of my political issues are going to come into play). Anyway, I think it is more likely for McCain to die than for Obama to be assassinated. But I do believe that there are those that would try and kill him. Freedom1st brought up many very good points.

That's true, but some people do work hard and long hours, but the job doesn't pay enough to support their family. Waitresses and people like that that work long hard hours really need the money, but the job doesn't have enough money to support their family while high society types that pay more money to park their foreign sports car than they pay their employees don't need the money. Movie stars and heiresses don't need 40billion dollars. It wouldn't be so bad if they were like diana ot brad and angelina. They're not though. It's not so cut and dry.

He is the most Liberal one that has ever ran for President, and would love to take away our rights, have us all not working for our own money so that the Government can tell us what we can and cannot.

Wow, Nascar what a question...I think the word "assassinated" is a little harshly used, because it implies that it is going to happen, like dying of old age is going to happen, but I read on one of your comments that you were bet to ask this question and I believe it...and wow look at the responses it has gotten!
So this is what I think, I think that Mccain is up there in years and its likely he could die before his term of 4 years would be up..where as "assassinating" someone is not natural so to answer your question I think that Mccain has better odds of dying before Obama based on his age if they were to die naturaly..of course

And some white people are ignorant and believe that they can make a difference or a point trying to assassinate obama, twice already you heard in the news about people conspiring to assassinate him and 2 days after he got elected people in kkk cloths started pros testing on busy streets , I really hope he makes it because it would just be pushing us backwards if he does get assassinated, but in reality here I think some stupid white person is going to f*** it all up for us sadly but true, I guess well see

Well Obama seems to have quite a few who have already plotted to get him and failed, but that will just make them angry and make them try harder. I may not like him, but I would not wish someone to die.... That being said he will probably be assassinated before McCain dies... At least if McCain dies I'll be okay with Palin. Obama is horrible, but the man who would take his place is worse with his naive thoughts on war.

If the job doesn't support your family, waitressing etc. Then it's time to look for another job or jobs. And the notion that you think waiters and waitresses don't make a "lot of money". When you take into account that if they are tipped what they ask for these days in tips (20% of the check total), they make a heck of a lot more money in one day than I do JUST in tips!!! And I'm willing to bet the majority of them DO NOT claim that on taxes although it is supposed to be taxable income. My mother was a single mother with 4 children, worked in a bank for more than 30 years. When she retired just over a year ago she was STILL making less that $30K a year, she owned her own home and took very good care of us......so I KNOW that it can be done. It's a matter of where you're priorities are. The point is.....it isn't right to take money away from someone that earned it and give it to someone else that is earning their own wage/salary just because their wage/salary isn't as high. Let's put it this way. Let's say you and a friend are in the same year in high school....you are making straight A's and have your path to college paved. Your friend on the other hand is hanging by a thread. Why don't we give her/him two point of your GPA that you worked so hard for just so that he/she can have the same grade as you. Which brings your GPA down to let's say 2.5....Does that sound fair to you? Doesn't to me......since you were the one that worked for it.

I think unfortunately Obama would not make it through the first term. Mc Cain is tough and would make it unless he gets assassinated also.
