Zell Miller Interview At Red State Rant

Lance at Red State Rant had a unique opportunity to interview one of the most fascinating people in politics over the past few years, firebrand Zell Miller, who defied his party and endorsed George Bush in 2004. Lance asked several bloggers, including myself, to submit questions for the interview and graciously asked them on our behalf. The first half of the interview has been posted today, and the second half goes up tomorrow.

Lance included one of my questions in today's post:

CQ: For such a consumer nation, America seems to do poorly selling ourselves overseas. How do you think we can improve in this area so that people understand what we stand for and what we believe, in the most positive light?

ZM: Well it would help if we had more in the media who understand that when they criticize America or the military or anything that relates to this country, when they criticize that, it's magnified many times over overseas. An example is the Newsweek situation. They should have known better than to have done that. Even if it's true they ought not to have printed it. It's not true, but even if it were true, they should not have printed it because they knewanyone would know that it would cause riots, people being killed. There are certain things that the media should and should not do when we're at war, and we're at war.

What a great answer. Read all of Miller's answer at Red State Rant today and tomorrow.
