Is a career in politics a far-fetched thought for you? Does the slick world of democracy disgust you? Does the venal world of politics make you sick to your stomach? If yes, then you certainly need to explore the lives of some of America's famous political leaders to know why politics is not half as repulsive as it appears to the modern minds. Agreed, modern-day politics is a pandemonium, full of vile, self-serving, gold-digging, and power-monging politicians who will not bat a lid before trading off their conscience and countrymen to fill their coffers and quell their personal interest. That said, history is pregnant with influential political leaders like John F. Kennedy, Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Ronal Reagan who led their nation to greatness with their ideologies, sacrifice and service. So put aside your apolitical thoughts, forget the media stories and check out for yourself the biographies, trivia and interesting facts about America's famous political leaders. We bet, you will be inspired.
