Sign of nerves in a politician (3)


I believe the answer is:


'sign of nerves' is the definition.
(as in a nervous tic)

'in a politician' is the wordplay.
'in' indicates a hidden word.
'TIC' is hidden in the letters of 'politician'.

(Other definitions for tic that I've seen before include "Regular muscular twitch" , "Muscle twitch" , "Involuntary muscular spasm" , "Nervous movement" , "Facial twitch" .)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian and The Globe and Mail.
