But what got me thinking about all this were several interviews of candidates on the morning and evening news shows. The reporter would ask a question followed by the candidate telling the reporters their qualities that make them a good candidate and giving no regard to the question at hand. The reporter then reiterates the question at hand only to have it totally ignored yet again by another rant on their qualifications. This brought me to the following conclusion:
It is easier to cut a grape in half with a spoon in a wet bowl than it is to pin down a politician on a question.
