Coincidental, I guess, but not hugely since the 'prediction'--if you can call it that--had nothing to with the manner of his actual death, and by "soon" he probably meant in the next few years.

I can take 50,000 people and each have them predict the exact day that Bill Clinton keels over, about about 10-20 of them would probably be right on the day. That doesn't make it a true prediction, just a lucky guess.

I was leaning towards coincidence as well. The OP did explain his reasoning later in the thread as you pointed out but I still thought the thread was interesting nonetheless.

Indeed. Still pretty interesting how quickly his statement came to fruition though. Regardless, I agree with you.

"People are entirely too disbelieving of coincidence. They are far too ready to dismiss it and to build arcane structures of extremely rickety substance in order to avoid it. I, on the other hand, see coincidence everywhere as an inevitable consequence of the laws of probability, according to which having no unusual coincidence is far more unusual than any coincidence could possibly be." - Isaac Asimov
