What should a politicians report card look like?
Do you feel re-election of a politician is a reward?
It should be a list of things that a politician should be. For example, how well they speak, how well they have retained information on key issues and if they listen. Basically it would look like a speech and debate score card, and then you add popularity because they wouldn't be where they are without people behind them.
A re-election is definitely a reward because it's telling them they are the best leader according to the people.
Your 2nd question first: Yes, re-election is a reward. In all but a few exceptions, a grossly undeserved reward. They get much better perquisites and pensions than us serfs. You want medical care reform? You should see the benefits that "royalty" gets compared to what most of us get or will ever get. Each term gives them more opportunity for direct and indirect payoffs. They all retire much more wealthy than when they start. And for what? Driving us into slavery (rules, regulations, surveillance, searches and seizures, taxes, fees...) and poverty (credit expansions and contractions, shipping jobs overseas, allowing unlimited illegal alien swarms...)
Now as to a report card, that is an interesting question. You probably won't get many answers. But here is the basic criterion. Grade them "pass or fail" on their votes on bills as to whether they uphold or trash the US Constitution Bill of Rights and various sections in the basic Constitution.
Along many of the grading columns it would state ....N for needs improvement

With all of the political hidden agenda, we never truly know what politicians have our best interest in mind. Should all politicians be required to take lie detector tests before and during office?

Politics in itself is good. It was basically created to give meaningful directions to an otherwise chaotic and multi-dimensional problems of our society. The politicians are the ones that make it look trashy and confusing to a majority of the people. Too much scandals/corruptions and too much...
