Obama as Henry V?

Chris Matthew's got that tingle up his leg again and saw a connection of our president and Henry V.
Can it be?

I am not a fan of Henry V because I am partial to France being its own country with its own kings, yet one cannot ignore the valiant military leadership and prowess of Henry.  Such boldness, confidence, and conviction.  This is what makes powerful leaders.

We know that it would be a turning point for both countries after the death of Henry V and Charles VI, and that France would raise up a soldier named Joan of Arc who would lead her country to victory and change the course of the Hundred Years' War.

As for this comparison: I am missing the connection to Obama, but its Matthew's small world.  I suppose he has the freedom to enjoy it.
