Do you enjoy fielding tough questions? As a teacher I have been accused of posing unanswerable questions on my tests. But let me tell you, I've been asked some real doozies by my students as well. Our children asked us some hard questions as they grew up. In fact at one stage of life, our son Mark asked so many questions that we nicknamed him "Question Mark." In case you've not seen a recent interview of Biden on a TV station in Florida, you can see it either on YouTube or on the WFTV website. It's clear that Biden, who has not had to field many tough questions in recent days, did not enjoy the experience.
Today's iv is a list of tough questions you probably wouldn't want to have to answer.

To vacillate or not to vacillate, that is the question ... or is it?
