Jerry Brown on Bill Clinton

“If Clinton didn’t exist, the Trilateral Commission would have to invent him because he has deprived and drained the radical energy out of environmental movements, out of the African American civil rights community, by just being there and being not Bush, not Gingrich, not Dole. He gives you a warm fuzzy feeling so that you focus all your negative energy on the Republicans, never realizing that in cutting welfare, in lacking effort on fuel economy standards, on alternative energy, on a living family wage, on disarmament, on getting rid of nuclear weapons — Clinton and Dole are exactly the same.”

–Jerry Brown, We the People readio archives, Aug.-Sept. 1996
