Who Is This Person

I have been watching the news, as I assume that you have, and I find myself wondering. Who is this person that has an abundance of political experience?

Does this include the time that the governments' policies were wrong, and demonstrated against? Does this include the time spent while a relative occupied a state office...or federal position? Does this experience include the responsibility of all of the bad choices of that relative? How do we weigh and measure what, if any, good has come from that experience?

Why would a person move to a different state to seek a political position in the U.S. Government? Something wrong with that 'home state?' Does that home state know something that we don't, or are they just not worth it? Will we be?

I find myself wondering if this person, or the relative, should be speaking face-to-face with a true, shed blood for their country, person? Do they have the right?

I'm wondering just how much trust any citizen should have in a career politician like this...in one form or another? I know quite a few politicians, but, I don't put that on my resume. I just pay my taxes, live my life and wonder "Who Is This Person?"
