Did Train inadvertently write the new song for the Democrat party?

The band Train has a charming new song out, called “50 Ways to Say Good-bye.”  Aside from the usual catchy music, the lyrics are simply wonderful, as you can see from this video:

Since I always have politics on my mind, when I saw the lead singer nonsensically fielding questions about his girlfriend’s departure, and his despair at his inability to lie decently, I couldn’t help but think of Democrat party operatives desperately trying to field questions about the Obama economy. Kind of has the same feel, doesn’t it? The only difference, of course, is that there’s nothing remotely humorous about a cratered economy and sour, poorer voters.

    “50 Ways to Leave Your Lover”?
    Thanks for posting the videos by this group. I went to their Wikipedia page and was surprised to find that two of the three audio clips were popular songs I like, but had no idea who the artist was. I might have to buy an album or two.
