When the questions are a bit tight give a loose answer. An answer that basically has nothing to do with the question or at least ends that way. That is what I took in from the Democratic Presidential Debate & the President’s news conference. There is no law that says you have to answer the question that is thrown at you so if you give a short in-between response and pivot you might just squeak out. It might not be the most honest answer but when one ask questions with no good answer it just might be your only escape route.
