Last March I paid tribute to Senator Zell Miller of Georgia as “My favorite Democrat.” Among the compelling reasons I cited in support of my designation of Miller was that “the guy has good taste in people. His [Web site] photo gallery includes shots with the following ‘good people’: Billy Graham, Mickey Mantle, Hank Aaron, Isaac Hayes, Barbara Mandrell, Dolly Parton, Little Richard, ‘James Brown, the godfather of soul,’ Emmylou Harris, and Dale Earnhardt.” I also cited the fact that “the guy has read enough books to have ten favorites. And they’re good ones too, substantial books like A Stillness at Appomattox [easily one of my top ten as well] and Lonesome Dove, not The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People.”
Now Fred Barnes reports that Miller has endorsed President Bush for reelection in 2004: “The next five years ‘will determine the kind of world my children and grandchildren will live in,’ Miller said in an interview. And he wouldn’t ‘trust’ any of the nine Democratic presidential candidates with governing during ‘that crucial period,’ he said. ‘This Democrat will vote for President Bush in 2004.’”
