Don't think I haven't considered it.
I'm of two minds regarding politics:
(1) I'm so sick if the Washington nonsense that sometimes I wish I could just forget the whole thing, tune it out, and just go on with my life. That usually lasts two minutes, because it does, and will, affect me whether I want it to or not.
(2) actually run and bring back as much inside info as I can, to REALLY inform my employer (the CITIZENS I represent) of the nonsense that goes on. Really try to do some good and represent We, the People.
What worries me about (2) the most is the intense pressure that comes from big donors. I'd be concerned that I'd become just as corrupt, power-hungry, and full of myself as those in Washington.
