"Step aside, I'll show thee a president":
Is George W Really Shakespeare's Henry V?
Political commentators have been claiming Dubya as a modern-day Prince
Hal since the 1990s, eager to ascribe a kingly divine right to a ruler
who, from his assumption of the throne to his current crusade,
lacks justification. With the invasion of Iraq, they're invoking
Shakespeare again, whether in praise
or in criticism. O
for a muse of fire!
