An expert predicts:

Barack Obama will be assassinated within months if he wins the US presidential election, world champion boxer Bernard Hopkins fears.

Mr Hopkins, known as The Executioner, earns his living getting hit in the head. He joins Doris Lessing (“The Bookinator”), Earl MacRae (“The Unknown Canadian”), Phillip Adams (“The New York Review of Books Subscriber”), Joseph Palermo (“The Assistant Professor”), Fifty Cent (“The Crack Dealer”) and Francisco Martín Moreno (“El Chupa Grande Lucha Loco Águila Sonambulo”) in the Obama Death Club.

UPDATE. The NYT’s Jeff Zeleny:

There is a hushed worry on the minds of many supporters of Senator Barack Obama, echoing in conversations from state to state, rally to rally: Will he be safe?

(Via Imre Salusinszky, who emails: “I love the way this assumes only charismatic Democrats are under threat of assassination. Anyone remember Reagan?”) And Ford.
