Thought Experiment-Can a Politician Have Friends?

Have you ever met a politician?  Been friends with one?  I once went out to dinner with a group of friends, one of whom was a politician.  It occurred to me to ask if a politician can ever really have friends, or if everyone they meet or know is a vote to be won.  I wonder if this differs by party?  My guess is that Democrat politicians have no real friends.  They tend to think of everything in life as being political; they see everything and everyone through a lens of politics.  Republicans, on the other hand, tend to be more religious, and churches and synagogues are a part of life where you have something else on your mind other than the next election.  What do you think?
