It is interesting that you should mention Booth. For such a man could, at the beginning, change the course of history, whereas at the end his actions had little effect at all.
Likewise were something to remove the charismatic Obama from this Stage the nether Bidden, Boehner, nor Reid would be able to replace Obama & his cult like hold upon so many of our people even if they were driven in the same way.
Don’t get me wrong I cannot advocate for anyones “removal” I’m simply making the intellectual point that Tyrannicide is inconsequence to an act at the end but not at the beginning.
Booth failed in his quest to save the confederacy because by the time he carried out his deed the confederacy was already beaten. What Booth did succeed in was reshaping the fate of reconstruction.
