CHRIS WALLACE, FOX NEWS: This week here in New York, a rare political double play will be completed. Georgia Senator Zell Miller will deliver his second keynote speech to a national convention. In 1992, Miller spoke to the Democrats here at Madison Square Garden. Now, although he's still a Democrat, he'll deliver the keynote to the Republican Convention.
Senator Miller joins us now.
And welcome. Good to have you with us.
U.S. SENATOR ZELL MILLER, D-GA: Thank you, Chris. Good to be here.
WALLACE: Senator, let me start with the old line, "What's a nice Democrat like you doing in a place like this?"
MILLER: That's a good question because I have voted for every Democratic presidential candidate since 1952, 13 of them. I've never voted for a Republican. But I'm going to this time.
WALLACE: And why?
MILLER: Because of the time that we live in, is one reason. In this dangerous time, we need a strong commander in chief, and I think that George Bush is one of the strongest that you could possibly have. I have admired and respected the way that he has grabbed terrorism by the throat. And I think he's the commander in chief that we need these next four years.
Of course, there will be the appeasers that prefer to vote like the Spaniards and the Filipinos to choose appeasement over liberty and freedom, that same liberty and freedom we have fought so hard to obtain and preserve. Of course, you'll find most of them missing also from the roles of those that have served this country to preserve that liberty and freedom.

"I've never before supported a Republican for president," Koch told me last week. "But I'm doing so this time because of the one issue that trumps everything else: international terrorism. In my judgment, the Democratic Party just doesn't have the stomach to stand up to the terrorists. But Bush is a fighter."
"Already, most of the world is caving. If you didn't have Bush standing there, you'd have everybody following Spain and the Philippines" in retreat, he says, trying to appease the terrorists instead of fighting them.
