1840 William Henry Harrison - killed by cold in office
1860 Abraham Lincoln - killed in office
1880 James Garfield - killed in office
1900 Theodore Roosevelt - shot while campaigning for president in 1912, but lived
1920 Warren Harding - killed by heart attack in office
1940 Franklin Roosevelt - killed by cerebral hemmorage in office
1960 John Kennedy - killed in office
1980 Ronald Reagan - shot in office but lived

Do you think that a close call with a pretzel counts?

I actually noticed this when I was trying to figure out why Colin Powell didn't run in 2000. I can hear it now "First Black president in a year ending in zero, no thanks, I love my wife too much."

Yup. No Presidents shot in 2000. Curse must be lifted.

Not quite, the year is when they were elected, not when misdeeds befell them... wrinkle, wrinkle, sploink! (tactical tinfoil deployment)
