You'd expect a politician to dodge questions on immigration, Iraq, Iran, abortion, etc. Heck, it's in their blood. Just don't ask them about Brett Favre and the Green Bay Packers. It appears to be the mother of all hot potatos, accroding to Polito.com.
Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, the future NFL commissioner, said: "Oh, I'll tell you. It may be dangerous to talk about Iran; it's even more dangerous to give advice to the Packers on this one. Brett Favre is a great, great player. And I hope if he wants to find a way to play, that he'll find a way to play."
Republican presidential nominee John McCain also dodged the question while in Wisconsin, Politico.com reports. According to the web site, McCain said, "I'm not so dumb that I'm going to jump into that one." So much for McCain's Straight Talk Express.
