Heard and read these recently. Worth passing on.
U.S. Senator Arlen Specter during an interview on 610 WIP quoting an old political acquaintance on the nature of success and criticism: "The higher you climb, the more people who can see your rear end."
And, a European politician, quoted in 2007 speaking about a rather boring issue in European politics: "We all know what to do, but we don't know how to get re-elected once we have done it."
My, how many political problems can fit under the logic of that statement!
