What Is Broder Suggesting Will Happen To Obama?

I was watching the late night rerun of Meet The Press last night and heard Washington Post columnist David Broder make this comment:

“It’s very unlikely, Tim, that she [Clinton] catches up in terms of the pledged delegates from the primaries and caucuses that remain… She has one other game that she can play, which is that, after the last primary in Puerto Rico, there will still be two months before the convention meets. During that time there will be events and there will be a ton of polls. Her hope has to be that either something happens to Senator Obama or that the polls indicate that she would be a better candidate against John McCain.”

I had to replay that a couple of times...does it sound to you like Broder is suggesting that Obama will be assassinated? (h/t Arlen and The Daily Background for the video)
