When you discuss the answer to a hypothetical question, you're exploring the way that your principles would lead you to act in particular situations. When someone asks you a hypothetical question, what they're asking in essence is, "what are your principles? What do your beliefs look like in action?"
So, when a politician says "I won't discuss hypotheticals", what they're saying is either:
1) I have no principles.
2) I do have principles, but people would like me a hell of a lot less if I publicly revealed what they are.
