"With the death of Osama bin Laden, President Barack Obama has found and killed the most wanted terrorist in history. After the successful operation, with no American casualties, you might think that the public's well-established tendency to trust Republicans more than Democrats on national security will finally be reversed. But it won't be. Here's why: The image of Republicans as tougher than Democrats on America's enemies doesn't spring from either of the parties' record on foreign affairs but from identity politics."
