Politicians are not another breed of people. A democratic society means: tomorrow, you may become the president of this nation. That’s what it means, yes? If you’re willing to stick your neck out, you may become the president of this country or prime minister of another country. So the politician did not drop from the sky. He is not some other creature. He’s just like you and me. He stuck his neck out, which you and me are not willing to do. Let’s admit this. It’s not an easy thing. It’s easy to sit down and comment, but it’s not an easy thing to try to run a nation! It’s complex, believe me.
