    "All W need do is survive ONE apparent assassination attempt ..."

    But Bush is so afraid of the public, and so superstitious about the 20-year rule, that his security is the best of anyone in history.  Hell, on September 10, 2001, the night before 9//, he had SAM missilies on top of his hotel in Florida.

    So any "attempt" on his life will be suspicious on the face of it.  

    The chances of botching an inside job are, however, quite real.  If the plan is exposed, the administration is neutered.  If the plan is bungled, Bush could actually get hurt, which probably terrifies him.

    Then again, if he were killed and replaced by Cheney and Cheney had a heart attack and died, Dennis Hastert would be president and Tom DeLay would be the power behind the throne like Cheney is for Bush, so ... better to leave a lame duck lame, I say.
