About this Quote

Paul Tsongas' quote suggests that he is being asked a tough inquiry and he is attempting to stay clear of giving a straight solution. This could be since he does not understand the response, or due to the fact that he does not want to offer a response that can be viewed as questionable. It can also be due to the fact that he does not wish to hand out excessive information. By saying "Let me try to evade you," he is recommending that he is not mosting likely to give a simple response, but rather will certainly attempt to prevent the question. This can be done by changing the subject, or by giving an obscure solution that does not actually attend to the concern. It can additionally be done by providing a verbose solution that does not actually address the concern. All the same, it is clear that Paul Tsongas is trying to stay clear of offering a straight response to the question.
