Democrat Zell Miller to give keynote at Republican National Convention

Retiring Senator Zell Miller (D-GA) will be giving the keynote speech at this month's Republican National Convention in New York.

Miller endorsed President Bush earlier this year, and had been previously announced as part of the Convention speaker's lineup.

In 1992, Miller gave the keynote speech at the Democratic National Convention that propelled Bill Clinton to the Oval Office.

"In 1992, Senator Miller delivered the keynote address in the very same arena at the Democrats' convention," GOP chairman Ed Gillespie said in making the announcement. "We're honored he'll be taking the stage at the Garden this year for President Bush."
Miller's speech nominating George W. Bush will come on Wednesday, the third night of the Convention at Madison Square Garden.

Well, if that isn't a thumb on the nose, I don't know what it is.

Wow. I didn't think he'd get the keynote speech.

Ha. Ya gotta love Zell Miller.

There have been a number of Georgia Democrats that are similar to him. It's just that they are so loyal to the Democratic Party that they wouldn't do what he's doing.

I read his book "A National Party No More" and it was very well written. I hope people listen to that speech and realize what kind of trouble the Democrats are really in.

What are Georgians saying about this, Michael?

I would like to buy the tape of the speech that Zell Miller gave at the National Republican Convention on September 1. Thank You!
