Bin Laden Killing Becomes Fodder For Presidential Campaign

Osama bin Laden may be dead, but he’s got a starring role in presidential politics.

He’s featured in an ad from President Obama’s re-election campaign — former President Bill Clinton speaks about President Obama’s leadership during the mission to capture and kill Bin Laden.

Romney has weighed in and said he would have made the same call to go after bin Laden, even though he had earlier said it was a waste of resources to go after one man.

Guest:

  • Rick Klein, senior Washington editor for ABC World News and host of the network’s political webcast, “Top Line.”
