Death threats are only natural for the US president and potential successors of the thrown to receive. But in the case of Barrack Obama, taking the initiative in making the necessary precautions to avoid any untoward mishaps before the actual elections take place is at the top of his partyâ€™s list.
The issue here has a mix or racial issues. It is a fact that Obama hails from a colored race and based on past historical events, the colored candidates have not had a good track record.
Obama will soon step up his campaign drive and this all the more becomes crucial for him since he is as good as a sitting duck. Obama has been placed under a secret service protection to be on the safe side. The additional security precaution was deemed necessary since it is obvious that Obama is one target that people may eventually want to bring down.
