Of course Mamoswine doesn't beat Politoed, but when I said opposing weather starters, I meant Ninetales and Tyranitar as I was talking about using Mamoswine on a Rain team.
Besides that, Ninetales or Tyranitar cannot safely switch into Mamoswine because they both fear Earthquake. If you can get Drizzle active and get Mamoswine on the field, your opponent will have a hard time safely bringing in their weather starter.
