All modern politicians are prone to assassins, the more prominent they are the greater the desirable security - Pakistan is a country with easy accessability of guns, that and tightly packed crowds make assassinations far easier and leaders of the PPP and other parties in the forthcoming election have to avoid exposing themselves outside bulletproof screening during campaigning.
Abraham Lincoln of course was a notable case of someone shot in a busy public venue and many others have been so shot or blown up since. Faster guns with greater capacities and more powerful explosives and walkie talkies and mobile phones have just made things easier for an assassin.
The PPP will probably actually get a higher vote than they would otherwise because of the sympathy vote, it is a pity though that the party remains so dominated by nepotism.
