– A Tennessee man authorities say is a white supremacist has pleaded guilty to plotting to kill then-presidential candidate Barack Obama and dozens of other black people in 2008.
Twenty-one-year-old Daniel Cowart of Bells, Tenn., pleaded guilty Monday to eight of 10 counts in an indictment accusing him of conspiracy, threatening a presidential candidate and various federal firearms violations. Under a plea agreement, he faces 12 to 18 years in prison, but a federal judge could choose a longer sentence.
Co-defendant, 19-year-old Paul Schlesselman of Helena-West Helena, Ark., pleaded guilty in January and will be sentenced April 15.
Authorities have described the two as skinheads who planned a cross-country robbing and killing spree that would end with an attack on Obama.
life without payroll.. Solitary confinement.. IMO, if they got out, they would only continue their despicable behavior and possibly have built their group membership up in jail. They shouldn't be allowed to socialize with anyone.

Since it was in the plotting stage (according to the c&p), it wouldn't be considered treason so I would think death would be off the table. I would think the crime would be sedition and I have no idea what sort of sentence would be given for that. I would hope that the judge would give a more harsh sentence than the minimum for taking a plea.
