Definition of Office Politics

According to Patrick Lencioni in "5 Dysfunctions of a Team," office politics is:
...when people choose their words and actions based on how they want others to react rather than based on what they really think.

What do you think of that definition?

Do you think doing that is political? Smart? Necessary to survive in the workplace? Just plain cowardly? Something else?

Curious to hear your thoughts! :)
