How to be a politician ...
Cicero gives an incredibly concise outline to his brother who is running for office in ancient Rome. The same outline entirely explainsToday's politicians on both sides of the aisle. Clearly people are the same today as then, and must be addressed in the same predictable ways to obtain their vote, help and money.
Perhaps you and I are the exceptions??
I now know how to run for office simply by following Cicero's concise plan. After reading the plan, it all in the execution.
I did not know much about Cicero, but please view his Curriculum Vitae on Wikipedia!
I had no idea. Almost stunning.

Not Marcus Tullius Cicero
Any additional comments?
Just to be clear these are the words of Quintus Tullius Cicero, the younger brother of the famous Marcus Tullius Cicero. So if you're looking for the well known historical figure's words of wisdom, these are not them, but they are close.
Close, because they are a list of political insights that mostly hold true to this day and are worthy of a listen for anyone interested in bringing history to life and discovering how little things have changed.
