Hurricane Gustave delayed the real start of the Republican National Convention - today, as it gets underway, we talk politics and the RNC.
We were hoping to break down Joe Lieberman's speech to the convention - along with those of Vice President Dick Cheney, and President George W. Bush. But, fearing that a night of politics might be seen as bad form as yet another hurricane comes ashore in the Gulf, the event in St. Paul was scaled back.
Tonight - presumptive nominee John McCain gets things back on track, as he hopes to reclaim the spotlight, given over to the Democrats in Denver last week.
Today, Where We Live, we'll finish our series of convention conversations with a talk about the RNC. Larry Cohen, Hartford Courant columnist joins us, and we'll hear from state Party Chairman Chris Healy in Minnesota...and there's plenty to talk about:
Including Sarah Palin as McCain's Vice Presidential choice, and what it signals about social issues creeping back into the campaign.
