Friday the 13th is supposed to be unlucky. There are a number of theories as to why. Of course there is probably no significant increase of bad luck on the day. In fact I'd be willing to guess that because many people don't want to risk it and are extra cautious on Friday the 13th, the number of accidents is lower than other days of the year. On the other hand, perhaps the psychological impact could make the likelihood to act in a way that causes 'bad luck' to happen possible. All of this is a long winded way of wondering if any of the candidates for the GOP nomination for president, or president Obama might have some bad luck today.
I doubt anything major will happen today, but if something does go awry for somebody in the 2012 presidential race, it should make for some potentially comical headlines tomorrow.
