Politicianspeak for "I don't want to take a stand on this issue until some other (more stupid) politician does so, takes the flack for it, and gives me some idea how the majority actually feels about it." A common stance of politicians who live in the Washington Echo Chamber where the noise of their own speeches deafens their ability to hear their constituents and doublespeak rules the day. A common symptom of political cowardice and waffling.
