President Bush, Joe Lieberman, Fred Thompson to address convention tonight

Fox News - The Republican National Convention tries to get back to normal Tuesday, after the threat posed by Hurricane Gustav gutted the agenda on the convention’s kick-off day.

Topping the revised agenda will be an address by President Bush, scheduled for 9:30 p.m. EDT via satellite remote.

Convention officials said other prime-time speakers will be Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson and Connecticut Sen Joe Lieberman.

Thompson was inserted in place of California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenneger, who canceled his appearance due to a state budget battle.
