Malcolm Muggeridge wrote about British Prime Ministers and what he said applies entirely to our elected leaders:

We like to persuade ourselves that our leaders betray the trust imposed in them and distort the aspirations of those who elect them. Actually they represent us all too exactly…No one is miscast. Each leaves the country appreciably poorer and weaker, both spiritually and materially, than when he takes over, giving an extra impetus to the Gadarene rush already under way.
