Looking forward, MD/PhD but not in hard science?

I have college left to finish but im starting to look forward towards my career and post-collegiate education. I've become increasingly interested in political psychology, intelligence analysis, government in general. I feel like having an MD (certified in psychiatry) and a PhD in government or the like would be useful, not just to further my education in the field but looking down the road if i decide to change careers mid-life etc. My concern is that getting and MD/PhD in unrelated fields seems rather difficult. I know schools like Harvard offer M.D./M.P.P deals but i think Id like to take it further. I know about MSTP, but no one makes specific reference to MD/PhD studies in non-hard sciences. Any input from anyone?
