I forgot about this speech by Senator Zell Miller at the Republican National Convention. I was reminded by a commentor at Pat Dollard's blog. Thank you "American Infidel". I went to YouTube and found all three parts posted by "ThePoliticalHawk".
The question that Senator Miller asked was this.............
Thank you very much. Thank you.
Since I last stood...
Thank you very much.
Since I last stood in this spot, a whole new generation of the Miller family has been born: four great-grandchildren. Along with all the other members of our close-knit family, they are my and Shirley's most precious possessions. And I know that's how you feel about your family, also.
Like you, I think of their future, the promises and the perils they will face. Like you, I believe that the next four years will determine what kind of world they will grow up in.
And like you, I ask: Which leader is it today that has the vision, the willpower and, yes, the backbone to best protect my family?
Ask yourself that question. My answer is John McCain.
