ST. PAUL, MN.--First Lady Laura Bush and Cindy McCain just addressed the opening of an abbreviated first GOP convention session, cut short as Hurricane Gustav and associated storms hits the gulf states. McCain wore a gorgeous outfit.
The session was focused on getting procedural work done--and raising money for hurricane victims. Websites of relief agencies for Mississippi, Louisiana, Florida and Alabama were featured in the hall.
Though the session was supposed to be striped of politics--Bush slipped once when praising the work of governors of the impacted gulf states--noting they were all Republican.
