Politics Is Politics

1. A politician is an artist
      in the art of following the wind
      of  public opinion.
2. He who follows the wind
      of public opinion
      does not follow
      his own judgement.
3. And he who does not follow 
      his own judgement
      cannot lead people
      out of the beaten path.
4. He is like the tail of a dog
      that tries to lead the head.
5. When people stand behind their president
      and their president
      stands behind them
      they and their president
      go around in a circle
      getting nowhere.
