Politics calls for people to be smart!!.

I love politics and any field that is related to leadership because sometimes or should I say in most cases you can never predict what will happen with the political landscape. This is due to the fact that you are always in suspense as you don’t know where that spinning coin will fall. Politics calls for people to be smart. You always have to outsmart your opponent(s). You have to be a step or two ahead. However, what I don’t like is that some people are crookedly smart. They play cards like a rat.

In this case one should have a team that works around the clock in order to study the other camp. A point I alluded to sometime back. This move should be for both inter or intra party politics. People think that opponents or political enemies are just found in opposing or rival political organisations. They are also found inside or within parties. In the actual fact it is more competitive inside a political party than it is across parties. This is because when dealing with inter party competition you do it as a collective force unlike intra party politics where you mostly do it alone.

As we go towards elections, battles will be fought more within parties. So before you look at or guess who might be your political competitor you have to look at who might be your competitor within your party. Some people will be nice to you and make you think whatever might happen they will be behind you.
