It gets old hearing the same old tired lazy phrase that all politicians sux or all are crooks when nothing could be further from the truth. The truth is that our system (though the best one going) lends a great hand toward making politicians dis-honest or crooks.

Some I've really liked as good men of integrity (3 Democrats 5 Republicans):

George Herbert Walker Bush


Paul Simon



Bob Dole



Joe Lieberman



Lamar Alexander



Paul Tsongas



Paul Ryan



Mitt Romney

Just speaking about good men of character and not focusing on efficacy as a politician nor my agreement with their ideology (which varies wildly across the board for those I'm mentioning).....

Ronald Reagan
Bob Dole
Jimmy Carter
Fred Thompson
Ron Paul
W
Orrin Hatch
Paul Wellstone

Plenty more I'm sure if I think about it

Reagan
Ron Paul
John McCain
John Lewis
Gary Johnson (I know, kind of out there, but was the best choice in 2016)
Jimmy Carter as a person, not a politician, though

He has shown backbone and doesn't cower to pressure.

Mittens Romney
Knox County Mayor Glenn Jacobs
CLT Mayor Vi Lyles
Justin Amash
Rep. Peter Meijer
Gov. Jared Polis
Gov. Doug Ducey

Politicians a fundamentally loathe:
Sarah Palin
MTG
Tom Cotton
Josh Hawley


EDIT: Adding in NC State Senator Jeff Jackson. Seems to be genuinely good dude, and very moderate/measured. Also his wife may be one of the hottest in the game.

Nah, just thought I’d make a list to trigger the board idiots, and throw in Hillary’s mentor and Biden’s good friend…Robert “kkk” Byrd.
