Running the country is all about the snap judgments and the spontaneity … what better way to test that than with questions that require them to think quickly? And let’s make them questions that let us get deep into their brains so that we can understand them all the better — “What’s your favorite type of cookie?” “Who do you think is going to win ‘Dancing with the Stars’?” “Where’s the beef?”
