    some point.  I'm not endorsing it.  but that is how politics works.

    Jimmy Carter was destroyed politically precisely because he refused to play that game, IMO.

    The issue isn't willness to do dirty compromises - FDR and Lincoln both did plenty - the issue is whether that is done in the service of some deeper vision IMO, vs. clinging to power and protecting your own goons from prosecution.
