The Politics of Convenience

If your beliefs come first, you have no issue standing by them all the time, not just depending on your audience.  That's what leadership is about - convincing people of the merits of your vision.  It's time consuming, requires an ability to listen and above all, it takes compromise.  People need to know you take them seriously.

If you don't, they won't take you seriously.

And they wonder why the public is cynical about politics.
