More Thoughts on Palin
It appears that Palin will be quite capable as an attack dog. The problem for McCain is that this isn't a particular need. What McCain needs is policy credentials and a credible governing narrative. For all of his years in the senate McCain seems remarkably weak when it comes to actual policy. His narrative is summed up in one word: Honor. However, this doesn't really translate into what to do about rising health care costs, the looming entitlement disaster, a decaying public education system, and a safety net with gaping holes when it is needed most.
