Character mistake: Cameron's attempt to assassinate the governor fails because McGarrett has everyone wear bullet-proof vests. It's been established that Cameron is brilliant, a top-of-his-class ex-cop and a crack shot. And he's been sending death threats, so he knows they'll expect him. Yet he fires at the governor's back and is shocked that the man doesn't die. Anyone with his expertise would have anticipated the vests, and aimed for the man's head.
