Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
so much as that he ran against the 1990s era clintonite party apparatchiks. while he built a formidable small donor base and grassroots organization, he was a very successful big money fundraising candidate, and was fairly clear about not having a populist anti-big money sort of philosophy, even as he critiqued the free-market-and-green-as-religion sort of mindset.

it was an internal party factional thing. jerry brown in 92, or to a lesser extent dean in 2004 were more classic anti-big money candidates. both foundered, tellingly.
