What Now?

National Review;4/3/2000, Vol. 52 Issue 6, p36
The article offers political advice to U.S. Republican presidential candidate George W. Bush. First is for him to stay on message. His interviews about tax cuts and education reform are good and popular ideas. Second is for him to stay him. This is to avoid reporters who will ask sensitive international issues and then headline his mistakes. Third is for him to keep busy. And last is to forget his name. He is different from his father, George H. W. Bush and he is a better politician. He should run his own race.
