You miss his point. Whatever we think of a particular politician, and however we think someone is an idiot, no politician seeks to lose his office. It's clear from the column that this is what Williams meant. It's not an argument original to him, either. Michael Medved points this out frequently in discussions with his listeners. Nearly all politicians want to get re-elected, and they will not do something that jeopardizes getting re-elected.
