A politician is an individual who is a formally recognized and active member of a government, or a person who influences the way a society is governed through an understanding of political power and group dynamics.
For example, a worker participating in office politics is a politician, but only so far as the operations of his or her workplace are concerned.
Politicians can also be criticized for becoming "career politicians." A politician who makes politics the source of their income, yet has to face re-election every few years can be less likely to make bold decisions or side with an unpopular bill.

 Guardian | Silvia Rodgers
The defining and happy moment in her life was meeting Bill Rodgers, later Lord Rodgers of Quarry Bank but then the dashing young general secretary of the Fabian Society.
The unions' behaviour, and the refusal of the legitimate Labour left to stand up to the Trots in the party, was, as she saw it, redolent of the weakness in the face of democracy's enemies that had led to the rise of Hitler.
When Bill became a life peer in 1992, she wrote an original anthropological account of the role (and space) of women in parliament.

He was a rare creature among modern politicians: a man whose other interests, as a prolific and noted author and journalist, more than made up for any disappointments.
But his sights were still on domestic politics and, while Labour took big strides to the left, Jenkins and a few friends, including former Cabinet ministers David Owen, Bill Rodgers and Shirley Williams saw the chance to step into the centre ground.
He kept a good table, where politicians, academics and other members of the glitterati were constantly entertained by discussion and anecdote.

So he and his stodgy banker brother, Boyd, don ski masks, evade FBI agents, distract the surgical resident (by pulling her scrubs down) and steal the heart.
I contend that it takes more talent to write a truly comedic successful novel than a widely popular dramatic thriller because, like men's ties and women's perfume, comedy is perhaps more linked to individual perceptions, and the sight gags seen in the mind's eye have to click.
Author Bill Fitzhugh pulls it off commendably well as he escalates absurdity to the point where, Spence having accumulated an ever larger entourage of abductees along the way, culminates a wild ride up Interstate 15 from Barstow by arriving at a Salt Lake City medical center with a busload of Mormon basketball players.
