The politics of politics: a sentence.
All politicians--the straight-talkers, the hope-mongers, those going negative, the so-called principled ones, the focus-group-watchers, the great orators, the clunky orators, the thrilling ones, the plodding ones, the ones you kind of like even though they support things you truly don't believe in, the ones you wish were a lot more progressive than they are, the ones who kind of sound progressive even though they're really not--are just politicians, at the end of the day: in the deepest part of their souls, they just want to get elected or re-elected.
