You don't. At least not without a lot of difficulty... It needs to go through studs, inside insulation (if present), etc. and that is almost impossible with drywall in place. You might be able to take the wire into the attic ceiling if its accessible and snake up and down through the walls, but even that can be painful. The best aesthetic solution I have found is to hide wires under molding (existing or buy wire routing channels to run along floor or ceiling; they come in various colors and styles, and can be painted to match the walls if desired).
I have seen a case where the homeowner insisted so strips were cut, wires run, and drywall patched. It was expensive and hard to make all those seams invisible over time. A casual glance would not find them, but you could see the lines if you knew where to look or caught the light at the right angle. Maybe a better drywaller good have done the trick, but over time as the house settled they became more obvious.
