well some people (who actually have an education) see as a means to serve the public good, get rich, change the course of a nation, besides other things.

Public servants don't get paid well, Fiat. So I don't know what you mean by "get rich."

Obviously you don't know, and that seems to be a very common reply on a range of topics. Generally, people who get elected are well connected to lobbyists, bussiness leaders, and other groups with special interests. Either before or after taking office these groups help elected officals get very very well paying jobs in the private sector. Also, the chances for media consulting, book deals, speaking tours, and other similar income sources are greatly increased.
