Comment:        Re: SHK 15.0660 Whence the Wince? Kerry as Hamlet, Bush as Hal

I would prefer to stick to the same play.  Kerry as Hamlet, perhaps, but
Bush as Laertes (quick to act but perhaps too quick, a true son of his
father, the front man for the real puppet-master behind the scenes?).
But perhaps we'd prefer a comedy to a tragedy.  As You Like It?  The
ending appeals anyway -- the usurping Duke has a conversion experience
and retires to a monastery, graciously turning over the kingdom to his
virtuous opponent.

The belligerent but easily confused Fortinbras would be a better choice
for W.
