Will the 20 yr cycle of death in office for US presidents resume with Bush?
Legend: U.S. Presidents elected in years evenly divisible by twenty are under a death curse and will die in office.
Origins: With one exception, since 1840, U.S. Presidents who have been elected in years ending in zero have been killed or have died of natural causes while in office. And the one exception (Reagan) literally came within an inch of death.
