2. Jerry, during at least one of the several times I met him when I was a teen, called himself

 

progressive and in fact, he is the reason I looked up the political history of that word. Another thing Jerry was steadfast against was the divisions some seek to make among Americans and among Democrats using 'terms of art' (had to look that up as well) to characterize others as being not as pure and wonderful as one's self and one's peers.
The single least pretentious political figure I have ever met, and I've met lots and lots of them. Clearly spoken and without the desire to put down others to raise himself up.
