Something that is a hindrance is something that gets in the way of accomplishment.  To hinder is to slow down, or interfere progress.

There are any number of ways you can relate this to the world of politics because being a hindrance to those you disagree with in politics is part of the game.  So consider these samples as ways to work "hindrance" into part of a political statement:

"The Democrats/Republicans were a hindrance to passage of the new law".

"The main hindrance to progress in negotiations was the final cost of the project"

"Congress was a hindrance to the President's plans for war".
