Subject: RE: BS: Popular Views of the Bush Administration
Jimmy Carter wrote Zell Miller, keynote Democrat speaker at the GOP convention, ending it this way:

"Zell, I have known you for 42 years and have, in the past, respected you as a trustworthy political leader and a personal friend. But now, there are many of us loyal Democrats who feel uncomfortable in seeing that you have chosen the rich over the poor, unilateral pre-emptive war over a strong nation united with others for peace, lies and obfuscation over the truth, and the political technique of personal character assassination as a way to win elections or to garner a few moments of applause. These are not the characteristics of great Democrats whose legacy you and I have inherited."

    Sincerely, and with deepest regrets,
    Jimmy Carter
