“America is full of politicians but few statesmen. If you think this is a recent problem, think again. It has been discussed since the founding.
“Americans have also grown fond of political dynasties: Clinton, Bush, Gore, etc. Even if the last election appeared to repudiate that trend, don’t get too comfortable. Modern politicians are like cockroaches. You can exterminate a few, but there will always be more.”
