comment A word for high level officials in the government
Andrew,Oldcat,Erik:Sorry for not making it clearer. I’m looking for a word for a group (or a class) of high level state officials (vs low level bureaucrats) in a non-democratic, authoritarian government where systemic corruption is rampant. These officials usually enjoy special privileges and do not need to be accountable to the public. I might have hastily generalized to “all” high level government officials; however in countries where officials are not necessarily democratically elected and corruption is widespread, when you hold high office, you are thought of as a member of (this) group.

comment Is there a word to describe someone who is always defeated at my hand?
Clarification: Both A & B were competing in a number of piano competitions and both are highly qualified top contenders. For some reason, A always won. B beat C before in another competition, but A lost to C several times in the past.

comment How to describe a guy who is popular with girls?
Pardon me for ambiguities. Actually it has nothing to do any sort of sexual connotation or orientation. While some answers seem to suggest the guy was successful in making himself popular with women, I am looking to describe a young chap who hasn't done anything to impress the girls but girls naturally like to hang around with him and feel he is pleasant to be with. He seems to have this special charm.
