Bill Clinton never pretended to be a progressive. His main policy/platform vehicle on his road to power was the Democratic Leadership Council, which was dedicated to fighting the supposed excess of progressivism in the party.
There are people who profess to believe (sometimes sincerely I suppose, it being a wonderful world where the most amazing things happen) that social tolerance is, in and of itself shorn of any progressive policies, "progressive." Niceness is not a policy. Politics is about policy, not about sermons for or against cultural values.
