she's gonna die because she can't ask others to die in order to protect her. She is the hokage, and so the strongest in the village, there's no greater honor for a shinobi than to die protecting their village. 3rd died while protecting konoha from Oro, 4th died while protecting konoha from the kyubi, and 5th will die protecting konoha from Pain. I say bring on Rokudaime Kakashi
A bridge towards peace; the will of fire still endures!
