Look what happens when a President gets elected in a year with a "0" at the end. Also notice it goes in increments of 20 years.

1840: William Henry Harrison (died in office)
1860: Abraham Lincoln (assassinated)
1880: James A. Garfield (assassinated)
1900: William McKinley (assassinated)
1920: Warren G. Harding (died in office)
1940: Franklin D. Roosevelt (dies in office)
1960: John F. Kennedy (assassinated)
1980: Ronald Reagan (survived assassination attempt)
2000: George W. Bush - ???

And to think that we had two guys fighting it out in the courts to be the one elected in 2000!

Ronald Reagan may have actually been a "curse breaker", considering he was the first one of the guys listed above to not actually die while in office.

I am certainly not cheering for anything bad to happen to Bush during the remainder of his term, at least not in regard to him living. The thought that Dick Cheney is just a heart attack... er, I mean... heartbeat away from the presidency is far from reassuring. I want Bush to live, because I don't want Cheney running the show. But wait a minute... doesn't he already run the show anyway?

Wow, I didn't know that! How very interesting... (Lizzy says with a smirk on her face.)

However, I'm with you. Cheney runs the show...he's gotta go first.

I thought the order was: Bush, Cheney, Rice, Rumsfeld, Satan, etc...

But wait! Doesn't Satan already run the show? I think he's got to die first.

That was my best guess of the power order, but I could be wrong. If Satan does exist, he's pulling the strings...or is that Cheney?

Haig, SOS under Reagan made the mistake of "I'm in charge" when Reagan was shot and Big Shrub was out of the loop. The misconception seems to have spread.
We all know Rove is the puppet master, after all he never argued the name of the book titled "Bush's Brain".
