  Hi Netters,
             While checking a Collier's Standard Dictionary for the correct
spelling of "Politician", the following was given:-
             (1) One engaged in politics, especially professionally.
             (2) USA One who engages in politics for personal or partisan
aims rather than for reasons of principle; also, a political schemer or
             (3) UK One skilled in the science of government or politics; a
             (4) The White-eyed Vireo; so called because it feathers its
nest with bits of newspaper or whatever comes easily.
              Being a birder, I like number four.
All the Best
