Don’t let the fact that he’s been dead for five hundred and thirty years fool you—there isn’t a more astute political mind around today than that of Richard III, the last Plantagenet king of England. Recently, we invited some Presidential candidates to seek advice from Richard. Here’s what he had to say!

Hi, Richard, maybe you can help me out here. My enemies are trying to destroy my campaign by repeating the name of a Libyan city over and over and insinuating that I am happy when Americans die. Shouldn’t these people get real?

 

Sincerely,

In It to Win It
