Doug, you're not convincing me that Clinton left a trail of bodies behind him. A 50-year old who doesn't have lawyers and body guards and business associates, shady or not, is not going have dead lawyers etc... And I think we can also say that someone with dual careers in politics and business--esp. when that person's partner also has business dealings--is going to know alot more people than most. It seems reasonable that there will be more deaths among that larger circle of associates than there are among smaller circles of associates.

Percentage-wise, if we were to look at Clinton's dead associates and my dead high-school torturers, my percentage is higher.
