I was asked this very same question during my interview. I answered that: (1) obviously that person has thought about his/her position before taking that stance; (2) I assume that we all want to do a good job and improve the product; (3) start with common ground from that opinion and show how that opinion is somehow flawed - show a divergence; (4) be diplomatic.... I got the job but somehow I think this was not the right answer.
