Politic vs political

Although seemingly similar, these adjectives have nothing in common.

Political means 'characteristic for politics', e.g. the political system. An adverb deriving from it is 'politically'.

Politic is a rather formal word, used to describe something as 'wise, well-thought', e.g. He considered it politic to leave before further trouble developed; an adverb: politicly.
