Dunkin’ Brands filed for a $400 million IPO yesterday, but somehow that news — or any business news — just doesn’t seem that important. The death of Osama bin Laden has dominated headlines all week.

U.S. Navy Seals killed bin Laden last weekend in an attack that would make Jack Bauer proud. Since then, OBL’s demise has dominated the news.

Today we’ve learned that the White House will not be releasing pictures of Bin Laden’s corpse and that OBL wasn’t armed when he was killed. U.S. intelligence sources have known for years that bin Laden wasn’t living in a cave but in a comfortable villa in Abbottabad, Pakistan. OBL’s wife, who was with him in the Abbottabad compound, tried to save him and was shot.

All of this leads to this week’s question: Is Obama now a lock to be re-elected in 2012?
