After the San Francisco Zoo Attack, the Tiger is now associated with "Killer"...the symbolism of the Buckeye is quite a bit more dense, and yet yields a VERY interesting result.
The Ohio buckeye is the state tree of Ohio and an original term of endearment for the pioneers on the Ohio frontier, with specific association with William Henry Harrison. Subsequently, the word was used as the nickname of the Ohio State University sports teams and came to be applied to any graduate of the university.
The buckeye confection, made to resemble the tree's nut, is made by dipping a dollop of peanut butter fudge in milk chocolate, leaving a circle of the peanut butter exposed. These are a popular treat in Ohio, especially during the Christmas and NCAA college football seasons.
The buckeye got its name when Native Americans noticed the nuts' resemblance to a buck's eye.
The traveling circus of U.S. Politics continues but what would happen if the current President were to die in Office?

A Faked Assassination? or a Curse fulfilled?
Jan. 8th - 16th, 2008: President G. W. Bush begins tour of Middle East. The President will be visiting the following countries: Israel, the West Bank, Kuwait, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt. Hostile territories indeed...
Feb. 22, 2008: The release date of the film "Vantage Point" which tells the story of two secret service agents (played by Dennis Quaid & Matthew Fox, both names which have cropped up in synchromystic circles) who are assigned to protect the President at a global summit on the war on terror. But when the president is shot moments after his arrival in Spain, chaos ensues and an American tourist and television news producer also bear witness to the events unfolding before them. As each person's perspective on the 15 minutes before and after the shooting are presented, only then is the truth behind the assassination attempt ultimately revealed.
