Unlike most interviews that we do with candidates, which tend to just touch on philosophy, this one with Susan Olsen stayed mostly philosophical. Think about it – we have asked candidates all kinds of questions about all kinds of issues, and then we backtrack those answers to figure out what their foundations are. And where ever those foundations are can give us a fairly reliable indication on how they would vote on future issues.
Which is, when we get right down to it, why the heck GraniteGrok takes the time to do these interviews in the first place. So why not start with that to begin with? And yes, we will be asking Susan about issues later on.
