Howard Fineman has a brief piece on the upcoming VP debate. In it, he asked the folks who prepped the last two veep candidates for their debates for some friendly advice.
Republican Stewart Stevens, who advised The Dark Lord in 2004, had this to say to Ms. Palin.
Her goal should be to not make news. And that means when Biden attacks, or the moderator's questions are detailed, she should not respond at length. Instead, she should focus on her personality.
Time to complete that maxim: "...than to open it and remove all doubt."
Wow. This man is specifically advising her not to talk about anything of substance. Because, of course, she can't. These people have officially given up on this albatross.
