Here's one I've never asked: what do you think of Richard Nixon? As I read it, the party line on Nixon has been all over the place since 1974: sometimes he's an almost pure victim of the liberal establishment who didn't do anything that LBJ, JFK, and FDR had done and will attack any conservative regardless of what he does, while sometimes he's a straight-up liberal either on foreign policy (most often during the Ford, Carter, and Reagan years) or domestic (most common now). I've heard other things, too...what do you think of Nixon?
