What does your campaign partner say about you?

Pres. Bush campaigned with Sen. Zell Miller (D-GA) today at Pennsylvania and Ohio events, in the recent effort to appeal to Democrats who aren’t sold on their own party’s nominee.

Zell Miller's notorious recent bout with insanity (take your pick -- his unbalanced keynote speech (SPITBALLS!!) at the RNC [filled with inaccuracies, as shown here], or his challenging Chris Matthews to a duel) would seem to make him an odd campaign tool, "tool" being the operative word. Was Yosemite Sam busy? Is Bush focusing upon the "angry and senile old coot" vote?

Sen. Kerry, on the other hand, was campaigning with Gen. Merrill "Tony" McPeak (Ret. - AF), a Bush supporter in 2000, who told a group of veterans yesterday that he would vote for John Kerry this year. "I made a big mistake. I've been trying to make up for it ever since." Retired Sen. Bill Bradley (D-NJ) has also been campaigning for Kerry.
