1. a student who spends much time studying and has little or no social life; grind.
2. a stupid, boring, or unattractive person.
3. a person who studies a subject or issue in an excessively assiduous and thorough manner: a policy wonk.
Präsident Clinton bekennt sich dazu, ein policy wonk zu sein - einer, der sich übertrieben gut mit Details auskennt:
"The second thing I want to tell you is [Obama's] got the right policies. And I've read them all. And I've read his opponent's. People used to make fun of me for being a policy wonk but I take it after the last eight years, we all know it really matters what people advocate."http://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2008/10/bill_clintons_speech_at_obamas...
