Why Politicians Like Being Politicians?

Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen (D) may have let the cat out of the bag last week about what drives politicians. A ‘photo-op’ of Gov. Bredesen showed him awarding a $1 million grant to The Hermitage, the home of President Andrew Jackson, the nation’s seventh president.

The governor began his remarks for WKRN-TV saying:

"One of the great things about being governor is you get to take taxes away and later give it back and people are happy . . . Is this a great job or what?"

Although he had a little smile on his face while saying that, we appreciate the governor’s candid honesty.
