    Descriptive info: On this page --.. www.. macronet.. org/bio.. html.. is the story I have told, that started in the living room of author Marilyn Ferguson, about how Jerry Brown, with the help of the.. in Cambria, California (.. ) database, won his string of unexpected victories in the primaries of 1992, and how that catalyzed Bill Clinton's choice of Al Gore as his running mate and, well, the rest that is history.. --.. Gregory D.. Wright.. Gregory Wright's Story:.. Al Gore's Rise to Vice Presidency in 1992 & Macrocosm USA's role.. On an afternoon in March 1991, I handed the Macrocosm USA database, a fully cross-indexed list of environmental and social grassroots activists in every state of the union on some half-dozen computer diskettes, into the hands of candidate Jerry Brown in Marilyn Ferguson's living room in her house  ...   and social activists in at least half a dozen states, whose organizing work in their respective states propelled Brown's candidacy to some three or four completely unanticipated first-place presidential-primary victories (in Colorado, Maine, Vermont and Colorado) that astonished the political pundits.. This surprising electoral strength of Jerry Brown convinced the ultimate presidential-primary victor, William Jefferson Clinton, to name Albert Gore, Jr.. (known to appeal to the same portion of the electorate) as his running mate -- and would-be successor.. if not for a vicious Republican Party, an incredibly stupid president [Clinton], and a massively self-centric (and also stupid, and loose-mouthed) little rich girl from the L.. West Side [Lewinsky] pretending to 'work' in the nation's capital.. (Unlike yours truly, who, at a younger age in an earlier year, went to Washington as a political intern and did work.. )..
