Politician

A politician, political leader, or political figure (from Greek "polis") is a person who is involved in influencing public policy and decision making. This includes people who hold decision-making positions in government, and people who seek those positions, whether by means of election, inheritance, coup d'état, appointment, electoral fraud, conquest, divine right, or other means. Politics is not limited to governance through public office. Political offices may also be held in corporations, and other entities that are governed by self-defined political processes or can be known as freedom fighters.

Famous quotes containing the word politician:

    You show me a politician with his heels ten feet in the air, and by Judas priest, I’ll show you an honest politician.
    Dalton Trumbo (1905–1976)

    The mark of a true politician is that he is never at a loss for words because he is always half-expecting to be asked to make a speech.
    Richard M. Nixon (b. 1913)

    A politician never forgets the precarious nature of elective life. We have never established a practice of tenure in public office.
    Hubert H. Humphrey (1911–1978)
