Words I Like: Tergiversation

Tergiversation: Dictionary.com defines it as "to change repeatedly one's attitude or opinions with respect to a cause, subject, etc.; equivocate." It's an action well-known to anyone who follows politics. One well-known tergiversator recently dropped out of the presidential race. Related: the "g" is soft.
