Doolin-Dalton, by the Eagles
Like graveyards filled with tombstones, waitin' for the names
And a man could use his back, or use his brains
But some just went stir crazy, Lord, 'cause nothin' ever changed
'Til Bill Doolin met Bill Dalton
He was workin' cheap, just bidin' time
Then he laughed and said,"I'm goin,"
And so he left that peaceful life behin.
I imagine this is exactly how Bonnie & Clyde felt - that that old life just wasn't worth living.

Answer: He did not kill OBL; he gave an order that was executed through a long chain of command on a plan created by others; he just said "Yes." On the other issues - debt-ceiling, single-payer, Bush tax cuts, deficit-reduction - it would have been him nose-to-nose in antagonistic action across the table from hard-ass, bad-guy Republicans. He doesn't have that makeup.
