"The Democratic constituency is just like a herd of cows. All you have to do is lay out enough silage and they come running. That’s why I became an operative working with Democrats. With Democrats all you have to do is make a lot of noise, lay out the hay, and be ready to use the ole cattle prod in case a few want to bolt the herd."
[Chester James Carville Jr.] (1944-) American political commentator, Democrat political consultant, campaign manager for Bill Clinton
