Presidential candidates should be mob protected
You'd be mad to run for president unless you were mob protected. Anyone who threatens you must fear certain death, to effect a detente.
For certainly, as the deaths of the Kennedy's have shown, there are those willing to murder to have the political landscape remodelled their way!
So anyone willing to seriously threaten you must be know they would be targeted, should anything happen to you.
This must be known as a fact, not a possibility.
