Well, in view of the general tone of my postings I'd like to stake my
claim to Holofernes.

If there is one character I pretty much excluded it was Ophelia.  I
suppose Falstaff is closest (and he has bath associations in MW/W).

And, Tom, I could not come up with a really good Monty Python voice for
you -- just dry and measured.  You should have heard Florence Amit
though.

I'd like to play Duke Vincentio's alter ego: Lucio.  He always tells the
truth.

For 'President' Bush I think you would need a combination of Richard III
and Richard II: someone both ruthlessly feckless and fecklessly
ruthless.  Both, of course, have a notable talent for encouraging
rebellion.
