>> 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.
