There have been a few comments that my husband is no longer a politician, since he no longer holds an elected office. Well I’m here to set the record straight; my husband will ALWAYS be a politician no matter what he does with his life.
A politician or political leader (from Greek "polis") is an individual who is involved in influencing public decision making. This includes people who hold decision-making positions in government, and people who seek those positions, whether by means of election, coup d'état, appointment, electoral fraud, conquest, right of inheritance (see also: divine right) or other means. Politics are not limited to governance through public office. Political offices may also be held in corporations, and other entities that are governed by self-defined political processes.
So, since my husband has almost been a politician his whole life, I will always be a 'politician's wife' Just to set the record straight.
