Of course. I simply prefer those with miliatry and governing talents.

With Antonius, all one has is his meager military attributes, as his governing ability consisted of him spending the state's money in order to pay off his enormous debts.

I agree. And his failed Parthian incursion didn't help.

He was a true Roman in spirit. But he was a very bad politician, and yet, he could be great. Augustus was just way way ahead.

I was introduced to Marc Anthony through Shakespeare's Julius Caesar, which presented him as a very clever and perceptive person. The extremely well-know "Friends, Romans, and countrymen" speech is one of the most manipulative speeches I've known. It has very good literary merit, too--of course, it does (what with Shakespeare being the author)

So, my rating here is based solely on my reading of Shakespeare's Julius Caesar.
