Kerry: "Back Then, Zell Miller was a Democrat."

With one notable exception, most top Democrats in Georgia were present Monday night as Sen. John Kerry rallied the party faithful with promises to end the Bush administration.
Sen. Zell Miller, the former Georgia governor who gave a rousing speech 12 years ago at the convention that nominated Bill Clinton, was nowhere around. He is now an avid supporter of President Bush's re-election.
Kerry noted that the last time he had seen so many Democrats in Georgia was at the Jefferson-Jackson Day dinner about a year ago.
"Back then, Zell Miller was a Democrat," Kerry cracked to the amusement of the 650 who dined on grilled chicken and rice pilaf while raising $1 million for the Democratic presidential campaign.
