Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Perot had some interesting points. I just didn't agree with or trust much of the rest of his program. And, at the time, I did not appreciate the significance or even the existence of the Neo-Liberal, corporate friendly turn that Bill Clinton represented. I was upset about the repeal of Glass-Steagall, the shouting down of Brooksley Born and the favoritism shown to finance. But I thought Clinton was still better than the alternatives on offer. I was working ~ 60 hrs/wk on engineering tasks at the time.

I didn't trust Perot either and backed Clinton in both '92 and '96 as the least of available evils, but I knew from the start he was a corporatist.  I knew he had whored out to agribusiness and developers while governor and turned about every body of water in Arkansas into a sewer in the name of "economic progress" and "free markets".
