Miller to honor Swift Boat veterans at conservatives' gathering: "For one night only, it'll be spitballs and Swift Boats together on the same stage—a who's who of Sen. John Kerry bashing.

"The American Conservative Union on Thursday announced it has tapped Sen. Zell Miller, D-Ga., to present the 'Courage Under Fire' award to the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth at the Conservative Political Action Conference's Feb. 18 banquet.

"Miller and the group of Vietnam veterans were behind perhaps the campaign's two fiercest and most memorable attacks on Kerry's unsuccessful presidential bid."

"At a post-election forum Wednesday in Boston, Mary Beth Cahill, Kerry's campaign manager, said she regretted underestimating the impact of the Swift Boat ads."
