FWIW, I have yet to encounter a process that is 100% purely driven by
science..."politics" always seems to enter the equation, even in code
development areas.

Politics is greatly concerned with directing finite resources so as to benefit the deserving. That's exactly what engineering does. Any engineer who hasn't attempted to gather support for a project he believes in or persuade naysayers, just hasn't been in the business very long.

There's good politicians and bad politicians just like there's good engineers and bad engineers.
