Everybody has their idea of what good politicians are and what bad politicians are. People hate or like the same politician while the person may have done something bot people liked. Everybody has their own idea of what makes a good leader and what does not. What are some defining traits of an ideal politician?

The ideal politician should be able to manipulate colleagues into voting for his measures, and being able to balance his own career interests with those of society in general, rather than protecting the interests of his own party.
"Here the ways of men part: if you wish to strive for peace of soul and pleasure, then believe; if you wish to be a devotee of truth, then inquire." F. Nietzsche.

"Freedom is always freedom for the one who thinks differently." R. Luxemburg.

"The principle of the masochistic left is that, in general, two blacks make a white, half a loaf is the same as no bread." G. Orwell, paraphrase.

"Islamophobia is a word created by fascists, used by cowards, to manipulate morons". Andrew Cummins.

Honesty, good ethics, rationality, intelligence, objectivist way of thinking, charisma, leaves emotions out of decisions, selflessness, openness, confidence, firmness, and politeness.

I believe psychopathy.

I seriously doubt these people even believe the crap that comes out of their mouths.
