There is a real fear among some in the African-American community to vote for Sen. Barack Obama because they worry that he will be instantly assassinated if he wins the Democratic nomination and the presidency.
CBN News spoke with one woman earlier this month who did not want to be identified. She said, "I don't want to be responsible for signing his death certificate."
Obama's campaign recognized the impact of this fear early on and devised a plan to combat it. According to Kevin Griffis, Obama's South Carolina communications, Michelle Obama spoke to a group of women at historically black South Carolina State University addressing this issue.
The concern that someone might "take Obama out" has waned quite a bit, but it has been the subject of some serious discussion.
In a recent interview with CBN News, David Brody asked Obama about the fear that he might be killed. Find out what he had to say by clicking on the play button above.
