How can we prevent the assasination of Obama?

Reading Bob Herbert's column about the beginning of 1968 and watching footage of Bhutto's assasination, I wondered what would happen if (knock on wood) Obama was murdered in 2008. Would there be riots? Some African-American voters are hesitant to support him for just this reason (even after he won Iowa). Is everyone thinking what I'm thinking? That even though Hillary has attracted more nutjobs, the toxic combination of far-right rhetoric about eeevul Muslims who want to destroy (Christian) 'murica and right-wing (oh, and you too, Ms. Clinton...and shame on you, Washington Post) whisper campaigns claiming Obama is an Islamic sleeper agent makes it more and more likely that attempts will be made on his life the better he does? And is making t-shirts the only defense available to those of us not in the Secret Service?
