>Kinney, editor of the Marietta Daily Journal interviewer.
>Kinney:  Are you going ot move further to the right so you can get more
>whites into the Democratic Party?
>Taylor:     We've been there, we are there and that is what Zell Miller
>accomplished for us as governor...
>Kinney:    Are the Democracts going to be able to hold the state Senate in
>2002?  In north Georgia, Republicans are stronger than ever.
>Taylor:     ...To be brutally frank with you, probably more frank than my
>press secretary would like me to be, but I think that 2004 is a tougher yar
>than 2002. Because if President Bush continues to be popular in Georgia, and
>if we don't have a moderate to conservative Democratic presidential
>candidate that will fight for this state over the television airwaives or
>through your newspaper and by campaign appearances, and if we have another
>huge turnout, as we did, that is going to be a tough year.
>Kinney:    Are you that gubernatorial candidate Democrat in 2004?
>Taylor:    I hope in 2004 I am in the middle of my second term as lieutenant
>governor.  2006 will be a different story.
