via @rsmccain on Twitter – If I were Sarah Palin
The Other McCain recommends that she enlist Dick Armey as a political mentor. She could do worse for a mentor, and it is a good start, but if she is serious about a national office run on her own she really needs to start building credible positions on national issues. Something beyond a sound bite. In my opinion she should break out the briefing books and start issuing policy papers. If I was her I would start with Afghanistan then energy policy. If she issues an new paper every six weeks or so it will bring her into the debate and start dispelling the barbie doll image the media has tried to develop around her. Especially if she can really demonstrate some mastery of the issues.
