Do you contend that politics is a game and that the average politician whether Republican or


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.

    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.

    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!
