 >> SHAKESPEARE turns a spotlight on Bush and Iraq Working for Change - San
 >> Francisco, CA, USA

Good grief, not more Bush/HenryV comparisons.   I would have thought the
differences were only too obvious by now...

1 - Henry (at least in the play) leads his troops into battle.  Bush was
on bonfire watch for Vietnam, and photo opportunities for Iraq.

2 - Henry was capable of winning wars as well as declaring them.
