There are other threads on Zell Miller, the Georgia Democrat who apparently supports the Republican Party and not his own party. I don’t want to get intoa debate about whether he’s right or wrong, but I do have this question:
What does party membership mean in the United States, and how is Senator Zell Miller’s current political position consistent with membership of the Democratic Party?
In other countries (like Australia or Britain), a politiician so at odds with his party would either have resigned from it, or been thrown out of it. So how can Zell Miller remain a member? Why doesn’t he resign? Why don’t the Democrats throw him out?
