The perfect politician is a unicorn.

They don't exist because, like all people, politicians are imperfect. But there are traits we can look for that signify good politicians, such as:
- growing as people over time
- learning from past mistakes
- a willingness to listen
This isn't a subtweet about any particular politician or anyone's feelings about specific politicians. This is a tweet from a 44yo woman who has seen people waiting for the elusive perfect political candidate their entire lives and watching them be chronically disappointed.
We will always find fault with our elected officials in some areas. But if we elect politicians who have a track record of growth and an openness to sit at the table with others, this is how we can get things done, I think.
