How to use prod in a sentence?

  1. Winston Churchill:

    I am certainly not one of those who need to be prodded. In fact, if anything, I am the prod.

  2. David Axelrod:

    How do you capture the data and build relationships with all the people suddenly eager to help ? How do you quickly build an organization equipped to utilize that data and those relationships and develop a strategy, particularly in the must-win early states, and how do you prepare for the sterner tests that come for a' hot' candidate, as media and opponents begin to poke and prod with greater intensity to see if you are up to the job.

  3. James Carville:

    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.
