NewsMax Interview: Zell Miller Regrets McGovern Vote

Thursday, 02 September 2004 12:00 AM

In an exclusive interview with NewsMax.com, the Georgian made it clear there was extreme reluctance where Mc Govern was concerned.

"Oh! I had a LOT of regrets about that vote," he told NewsMax.

Miller has stated that he has voted for the Democratic ticket every year until this election when he intends to cast his ballot for George W. Bush. So NewsMax asked him about any retrospective thoughts on the three most dovish Democrats to head his party's ticket over the many years he has cast his ballot for them.

What about Adlai Stevenson in 1956?

"Well, that's so long ago," he said and besides, he was a young man then.

But he did admire "the way Ike [Eisenhower, the Republican who defeated Stevenson] stood up to America's enemies in the Cold War."

OK, so what about Michael Dukakis, whose dovish positions were cartoonized in much of the public perception when he posed for a photo shot while riding in a tank in 1988?

Senator Miller did not even want to go back over that. No point in it, he said. But the senator felt strongly enough about McGovern to acknowledge that at least that Demcoratic standard bearer was short of what it takes for the Oval office.
