ST. PAUL, Minnesota (CNN) - A White House official says first lady Laura Bush and Cindy McCain will speak briefly from the podium at the Republican convention tonight, urging delegates and television viewers to help hurricane victims. Mrs. Bush herself said at a Louisiana delegation breakfast Monday morning that she will give a speech tonight, and noted she will talk a bit about what a terrific first lady Cindy McCain will make. The Republican National Committee will reveal more details within the next hour.
Watch: Laura Bush reacts to the storm
All this vitriol – it's amazing that you all call yourself Americans – what it sounds like to the rest of the world is that you are either Democrat or Republican – not American – grow up all of you!
I think the really telling factor in this whole convention will be the ratings report on Friday.
35 million people watched Obama's speech.
two weak soft women with no backbone, no morals and no conscience.
two women who stood by and smiled while their men killed millions, planned on killing millions more, and nearly destroyed america and our dreams.
I'd rather watch the hurricane coverage itself. I have 0 interest in ever listening to Cindy McCain.
Laura and Cindy should be able to convince everyone that because Alaska is close to Russia Sara is the best pick for her foreign affairs experience.
Your country is rapidly becoming the laughing stock of the world when they see John McCain is within 50% of the popular vote after all his screw ups including his VP pick.
Trophy wives to speak tonight?
What happens if they hold a convention and no one watches?
Changing the focus from the RNC to the hurricane is a nice way to bow out respectfully and not loose face, DNC hard to follow, they could never top it without being theatrical and in poor taste. Not at all convinced of any real humanitarian conviction of Bush, McCain or GOP.
