This is totally going into my Munchkin game. The campaign is in big part a parody of real world politics, and this fits perfectly!
Lawful? The law is whatever a politician says it is, so of course he is lawful!
Except lawful is not about laws but about how much you are willing to conform to social norms. I wouldn´t make this class lawful. These platforms are a really cool idea. The fun thing is that in D&D, to become a good politician, you need many levels in this class and you need to bump uglies to get those.
