Will the United States go up in volcanic flames?

Yellowstone is a super volcano that is guaranteed to explode eventually and could explode tomorrow.  The United States would be virtually eliminated in one day by this volcano and the rest of the world would be plunged into a long deadly winter because of the resulting ash cloud.  There is nothing we can do to prevent this from happening.

Sounds like a fairly bleak scenario to me but its a real possibility by anyone's standards.  I hope it doesn't happen for a really long time. I saw some type of television documentary that the people most likely to survive this eruption in the long term would be groups like the Amish. Perhaps the meek will inherit the United States sooner than most people anticipate.
