so must skilled politicians have an awareness of the choices at their disposal..........

Skilled politicians always do know or almost the next move, akin to the chess game.

Hope this helps now.

Question:

Just as consummate chess players must hold in their minds the positions of each piece on the board, and know too the ramifications of each move, so must skilled politicians have an awareness of the choices at their ____________ and the ability to anticipate the ____________ of their actions.


A parallelism is suggested between the actions of the chess players and those of politicians by the idiomatic phrase "just as....so must".


Just as a chess player must know the position of each piece, and the ramifications of each move
so must the politicians know the choices at their disposal, and anticipate the consequences of their actions
