Not necessarily.
I associate politicians with lawyers: insult a lawyer and he/she will never punch you. Sue you, fine you, whatever to get an advantage.

While at some point in history the politicians were men and women of action, driven by the need to act in what they thought was the best interest of the masses, current politicians are law-trained individuals with a lack of empathy and a need to act in what they think it's their best interest.

Or, as my grandpa is still saying: a politician is a man who could not learn a proper trade and has to make a living by talking b*******t.

{sorry, been offline a good while. Trying to learn new interface and accessibility. For awhile it seemed like it was going to let me increase points- instead it erased my comment (yet again)

My newer view is that the people are told they get to vote on choice of representation, only to find lack of choice, only politicians designated available for more offices. 'Politicion'  is some four letter word (cursing term) that provides reason to not vote anymore.
