  Politician
At this point, a politician is in the early stages of her career, holding a relatively low level or local office.

 Salvatore Quasimodo - Nobel Lecture
In the contemporary world the politician may well take a variety of stands, but an accord between poet and politician will never be possible, because the one is concerned with the internal order of man, the other with the ordering of men.
The poet can say that man begins today; the politician can say, and indeed does say, that man has been and always may be caught in the trap of his moral baseness, a baseness which is not congenital but rather implanted by a slow secular infection.
While the poet is conscious of the politician's power, the politician notices the poet only when his voice reaches deep into the various social strata; that is, when lyrical or epic content is revealed as well as poetic form.

 The Entrepreneur and the Politician
The entrepreneur derives utility only from his income; the politician derives utility from government income (now the profit of the firm) and the number of his or her subordinates (that is, the size of the government, which gives the politician a sense of power).
The politician, however, may be of two types, the "L type," which is more predatory in tax collection and has more desire for power, or the "H type," which is less predatory in tax collection and has less desire for power.
To convince the entrepreneur that the state governance reform is the politician’s time-consistent action, the politician has to send a credible signal to show his or her intention to reform.

 The Catholic Politician and Abortion Law
An alternative position which a Catholic politician might adopt which also seems to me also to fall within the terms of EV 73 is that he or she will support an abortion bill which, she believes, will contribute to the lessening of abortion and the protection of at least some babies.
Here the politician is facing a law "ready to be voted on" and does his or her best to improve that law.
But if the politician’s goal is tightening up an otherwise permissive abortion régime or proposed liberalisation of it, thereby saving some babies, then his or her object is not immoral, even if some undesired effects are foreseen or risked; his or her co-operation in the evil of others, if any, is material at most.

She is feared as a brilliant politician only because she is such an obvious politician, which is actually the key mark of a bad politician.
Thus, politicians find it in their interest to move to the political center, which is simply another way of saying that they try to resemble the politics of the "median voter" (i.e., the voter who has half of the electorate to his left and half to his right).
Specific styles will vary from place to place and politician to politician, but a an effective style is the essence of good politicking: A politician must put on a strategically cultivated personality that nevertheless seems honest and natural.

 OBSERVATIONS ON POLITICIANS
A politician is anyone who asks individuals to surrender part of their liberty -- their power and privilege -- to State, Masses, Mankind, Planet Earth, or whatever.
"Politicians are politicians all of the time -- whether they're helping themselves to an extra-serving of farm-subsidy bacon, writing new laws about when their opponents can and can't run ads about them or appointing bureaucrats to enforce those laws.
While politicians and their allies are fond of decrying the fact that at any given time, millions of Americans lack health insurance, they forget that they themselves have played a major role in creating the conditions that have made going without health insurance a recipe for individual financial calamity." -- William L. Anderson
