Yes! Its not the professtion that is dishonest but the person... So it really depends on who the person is,not what their job is.

Although many people in politics are surely dishonest I am more than sure that there are several that arn't. Remember: That percentage that is corrupt and dishonset ruins that whole view on that group, even the 'good' ones.

Yes. I think that it is. The most honest politicians are usually the ones who did not really consider seeking public office in the first place.

I feel the answer to this is no.
Maybe those at the local level can maintain honesty, but if one wants to be powerful in politics, one has to learn how to speak from both sides of their mouth.

not so far.

More than likely not. Politicians tell the people what they want to hear. That doesn't mean they (the politician) will stand by his/her word(s).
