The world can be divided along any line, but the political class is the same howsoever you cut it down to. Irrespective of their individual identities, their colour, their country or their way of coming to power, politicians have a quintessential characteristic trait that brackets them in a single cocoon. They make promises, often false, and speak like there is no tomorrow. And we love it when they speak, and cheer or jeer as the case may be. Sometimes, the best of politicians utter something stupid and it is these quotes we cite as proof of their intellect (or absence of it). This list has 10 such quotes by politicians.
