Blacks across America are expressing fears that Barack Obama, possibly the first African American President, will be kept from the White House by an assassin's bullet. Some black voters claim that their premonition is so great that they will not vote for Obama.
Others admit to the fear but believe that his run for the Presidency is a greater good that calls for courage in the face of danger.
As Obama attracts more and more delegates, and Senator Clinton's chances for the nomination seem to be slipping away, she has shown new interest in being Obama's Vice-presidential nominee.
Speaking at the rifle counter of a Walmart in Memphis, Tennessee, Clinton compared Barack to Dr Martin Luther King Jr: "I would be happy to serve this nation in whatever capacity I can. If Senator Obama is chosen by our party I would be glad to be one rifle bullet away from the Oval Office. For goodness sake, I spent 8 years right down the hall listening to all of Bill's goings-on!"
