(Atlanta Journal-Constitution) Former governor and senator, Zell Miller, died at 86 after suffering from failing health for several years, according to his grandson, Bryan Miller.
He was a keynote speaker at a Democratic National Convention — and a Republican National Convention.
A United States senator and a two-term Georgia governor who really wanted to be a minor-league shortstop. A man unswervingly loyal to his mountain roots who came to be seen as a traitor by many in his political family. A politician who never strayed from his basic principles, yet seemed utterly unpredictable.
