How to use "Statesman" in context?

The word "statesman" entered the English language in the late sixteenth century with the meaning of a sovereign who manages the affairs of a country. Now, the word is often used generically to describe someone who is skilled at making difficult decisions and who is respected for his or her expertise in a particular field. A statesman generally is not a professional politician and, as such, is not always popular with the public. However, a statesman's sense of duty and respect for the rule of law often makes him or her successful in leading a country.
