I'm Not Telling You Where I Stand Until You Elect Me

Why would you vote for someone who won't answer a simple question?
Alison Lundergan Grimes, the Democratic challenger to Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell, refuses to say whether she would have voted for Obamacare. Asked the question twice directly by the Associated Press on Wednesday, she dodged it both times.
If you vote for someone who won't answer a question about a vote she will never actually have to make, what does that say about you? Is party above all for you? This is mystifying to me, even if she says she would have at the time, she could explain it with "but I understand now that it is flawed and it needs to be overhauled" or SOMETHING. Instead she only shows herself to be a gutless coward who will only take a stand for political expediency.

Why would you want someone like that in office, no matter which party they are representing?
