Interesting, uh, Analogy

A New York magazine piece on whether the Democrats will actually win this fall includes an interesting quote:

The Contract was a silly, obvious gimmick, its planks ranging from the merely hoary to the plainly unconstitutional. But it also embodied a clear, coherent, and specific governing agenda—something the Democrats have failed utterly to offer in this campaign cycle. “A lot of people don’t leave unhappy marriages until they find someone they want to have an affair with—they need an attractive alternative,” says a Democratic consultant who worked in the Clinton White House.
Gee, why would someone who worked in, of all places, the Clinton White House, come up with an analogy that involved cheating on one's wife?
