Vice President Dick Cheney and Sen. Zell Miller hammer at Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry, saying the Massachusetts senator is weak on national security and has changed his stance on Iraq and other issues.

The attacks came on the third night of the Republican National Convention, as Cheney accepted the party's nomination for another term.
