ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) _ President Bush says he's confident voters
``will cast their ballots for the McCain-Palin ticket.''

Bush spoke to the Republican National Convention from the White House via satellite. He told delegates he couldn't be there in person because of Hurricane Gustav, which hit the Gulf Coast.

Bush called John McCain ``a great American and the next president of the United States.''

The image of Bush speaking from the White House was projected on the stage. Bush's brief speech ended right at 10 p.m. Eastern, just
as the TV networks were beginning their live convention coverage.
