as a politician, you need to see his/her merits and how much s/he has contributed to the country and the country folks. (u.s. president wrote checks (dreams and hopes) when he innaugurated the first term. it is time to cash out the checks to reelect.) personal attacks are the lowest level of interest and wast of time and resource, unless you are directly or indirected related when policies are adjusted. cheers.
as a politician, you need to see if s/he is fully qualified to do the jobs, and how well s/he accomplished the job duties.
as a politician, s/he must be responsible for the country and the country folks, and serves the people heart and soul.
