Well I wouldn’t like to be a politician at the moment, but I’m always happy listening to them being dissected on radio and television. We’ve got a lot more of this activity coming up with 20N just around the corner.
A criticism which gets levelled on regular occasions is that Sr. X (whichever politician you don’t like) is “nadando entre dos aguas” (swimming between two waters).
We have two expression in English that mean the same – “sitting on the fence” (which sounds SO uncomfortable) and “hedging your bets” (which at least sounds more strategic).
In a very black/white, left/right culture “nadar entre dos aguas” is roundly condemned.
