the politician's credo

As a kid, I enjoyed watching the TV show "Maverick," with James Garner and Jack Kelly. Often Garner would utter some aphorism attributed to his "Pappy." One of the best is a statement I have come to consider the politician's credo, for it seems to explain so much of what goes on in campaigns.

It goes" You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time -- and those are pretty good odds."
