Why Obama Owns bin Laden

Jon Meacham: "Since at least 1968, Democrats have traditionally been more circumspect than their Republican foes in presidential politics. The lesson of the Clinton years and of Obama's win both of the nomination and the general election in 2008 is that Democrats need to be as tough as JFK was ('tough' was a favorite Kennedy term). Is the bin Laden ad fair to Romney? No, not really. But politics is not for the faint of heart...The way to put oneself in a position to take the harder, more honorable political path is to argue for one's virtues in a vigorous way. That's what Obama has done, and is doing. There'll be more punches coming."
