8. Let's blame the actual assassin for once.
Otherwise, we may as well blame Reagan for Indira Ghandi's assassination in 1984, the elder Bush for Rajiv Ghandi's assassination in 1991 -- and Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto's assassination on Jimmy Carter in 1979.

Fundamentalist crazies perform political assassinations in that part of the world in all kinds of seasons, no matter who we have as our President.

What a tragic loss.
