Absolutely not! LOL.  I can’t even imagine going through that.

I think you have to have a very particular type of personality to want to be a politician. I've considered it - and rejected it immediately! I don't have the right type of personality, and would really hate it. Now, background work, that I could do.

They have to be immune to everything and thrive on dissent. Their families must also be immune to smears and publicity. Once they get into office, their sessions are very slow and boring a lot of the time.  We only see dramatic events in the media but try watching CSPAN.  They love to hear themselves talk.

Not to mention the bills & laws themselves.

Have you ever tried to read a bill like the health care ones? Boring, AND confusing!

Since politicians can legally be bought and paid for now, I'm going to save for that.

Long and boring, unless it’s your career. Then you have to read it all.

Legality has almost nothing whatever to do with really buying a politician, it just takes guts and charisma to con your way into whatever position you want.

Watched a biography on Eisenhower. There was an incident, I think it was the U-2 incident  with Russia where President Eisenhower was asked for answers on the golf course. He felt it necessary to travel back to the Whitehouse to address the nation. Addressing the American public from a golf course would be disrespectful. Brought a tear to my eye. And reminded me how Trump called our Whitehouse a dump.

That was also the time when hat, jacket and tie were de rigueur for going to Ebbets Field to routinely watch a game of baseball, times do change.
