Transcript provided – “She should have Henry Kissinger babysitting her.”

BEN STEIN, AUTHOR, FMR. NIXON SPEECHWRITER: Thank you so much.
O’BRIEN: My pleasure.
You have been a speech writer and a lawyer for President Nixon. Let’s talk first about Governor Palin’s speech. What do you think she needs to get across? And as a speech writer yourself, how do you navigate some of those tricky things, the controversy, with specifics that some people said they want to hear?
STEIN: I don’t think she has to do much. I think as one of your previous guests said, expectations are so low, if she basically can put one word in front of the other, people will be impressed. I don’t think anybody is going to be picking on her about her daughter, I don’t think anybody is going to be picking on her about a 22-year-old DUI for her husband. People want to know if she is a down to earth, pro-family, pro-life conservative. And I’m sure she’ll hit that one right out of the park.
