Democrat cares nothing at all about his/her constituents but only his/her self-aggrandizement, celebrity, and next career move?

This is TRUE indeed. Political office is seen as a career move and to leave a celebrated legacy. Politicians are smart; they know that if they are elected to office, they will gain such celebrity in addition to amassing socioeconomic accoutrements.
Most don't spend tens of millions of dollars of their own money. They spend tens of millions of their campaign contributors' money. Others, like John McCain, marry rich women and use their money.
Excellent synopsis of politics.. Politics is indeed show business for less attractive, ugly people. However, didn't know that politicians were descended from preachers. Well, there is DEFINITELY a CONNECTION there!
I'm a Liberal Democrat who LOVED this response, it is SPOT ON as usual, Tsad!
gm, You just sent a chill up my spine ... I'm a conservative (Republican? well, sort of) who LOVED your response, IT is ENIGMATIC as usual, Gm :-)
Your response is so SUCCINCTLY TRUE. The premise of the current Democrats are it is THEIR way or NO way at all. How sad. Also, I simply LOVE Jeff Foxworthy!
The House's job is to look out for constituents. The Senate's job is to be the caretakers of the Constitution. But politicians in their spare time only talk about getting re-elected and beating the other party at something. That sounds like a game.
Old--Admittedly, my education concerning the functions and responsibilities of the legislative branches dates to the 50's, but both Houses take the same oath of office, U.S. Constitution, Article VI, clause 3, to defend the Constitution. Am I wrong?
