A few simple rules that people in politics should follow that can save them a lot of grief and hassle.

*We figured a few more rules might be in order for those who didn't get it the first time:

* If you ever start a sentence with "Do you know who I am?" you are guaranteed a bad result

* Never do anything with anyone who doesn't have as much to lose as you do

* Discretion really is the better part of valor and never take anything personally

* It's also okay to change your mind about an issue as long as you have a well-thought out reason for doing it

* Every elected official should have to spend time in both the majority and the minority so they can know how life feels on the other side of the fence

* Stupid really is as stupid does and no one has a monopoly on it or bright ideas

* It's not your money

* Be mindful of the toes you step on today because they will be connected to the rear end you may have to kiss tomorrow

If more people would follow these rules, we'd get a lot more done in this city, granted our job would not be as interesting, but we'd still get more done!
