I agree with the former. But the latter is what I doubt. Littlefinger, Queen of Thorns, and even Varys, wield power without being leaders.
But they're clever
, and we have no evidence to suggest Sansa is, too. Sure, Petyr can train her in some of his cunning ways, but he can't train her to become smarter. He can only train her to use what is inside her to better effect.
All in all, I would be very disappointed with a plot that has her suddenly transforming into a power player.

Although the fact that they name the entire TV series after it (rather than the proper series name) is suspicious...
