Jerry Brown calls Democratic convention 'a love fest' compared to 1992

California Gov. Jerry Brown, a veteran of three failed bids presidential bids, downplayed the infighting that roiled Monday's session of the Democratic National Convention, comparing it favorably to his tussle with the Clintons nearly a quarter century ago.

The (1992) convention was so controlled, they wouldn't even let me talk," Brown recalled Tuesday in an interview with the Washington Post's James Hohmann. "This is a love fest compared to that."

Of course, Brown had refused to endorse Bill Clinton up to that point, and he didn't have nearly as many as potentially-disruptive delegates as Bernie Sanders brought to Philadelphia.

For all the booing Sanders supporters unleashed Monday, Brown said he expects "the vast majority" of them to back Clinton, if only to stop Donald Trump.
