Hell, I think I could beat Joan of Arc.

So...Agrippa, ahead by a typical French surrender!

HA!!!!

I have to agree that Joan was an "inspirational leader" - but then again, so was Richard Simmons!

Does this mean that she was a good troop commander in the field? No!

Was she able to divide and conquer some of the most powerful militaries in the world... um... No!

Was she a good chearleader that helped give her (or his - at the time) soldiers something to fight for? Maybe...

All I know (and I'll be the first to admit that's not much ) is that Agrippa - given his circumstances vs. Joan and her Sweatin' to the Brittny's... I definately have to vote nolo contendere - Agrippa would have crushed her!

Now, I would have paid money to see that one! I think the French would have won that one a lot sooner!

Hmmm - Joanie wouldn't have lasted a week in those conditions... Her own army would have catapulted her head!
