McCain calls for convention changes

John McCain called for sweeping changes to the GOP convention schedule next week in the wake of Hurricane Gustav threatening the Gulf Coast just over three years after Hurricane Katrina destroyed the city of New Orleans.

“We must redirect our efforts from the really celebratory event of the nomination of president and vice president of our party to acting as all Americans,” the Republican presidential candidate said standing alongside his running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, and Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour.
