Tonight, President Bush will address the GOP convention via satellite at 9:30 p.m. EDT. His speech was rescheduled from Monday due to Hurricane Gustav. In an interview with ThinkProgress today, Politico’s Mike Allen said “the people here definitely want [Bush] to talk” and that they “are very excited about it.” Allen said the McCain campaign is also “excited” for Bush to address the crowd:

Q: Is McCain’s camp excited about Bush coming to speak?

ALLEN: I think they are, because they know the positive effect of this convention, and they want this crowd to be happy. And it’s not as if people are going to forget that Senator McCain is a Republican, so they might as well have whatever benefit there is to that.
