Michigan Delegates

All Things Considered host Robert Siegel is at the Republican National Convention in Philadelphia. He spent time on the floor of the convention hall Tuesday night, with the Michigan delegation during John McCain's speech. McCain won Michigan's primary. And here in Philadelphia, the delegation from Michigan includes some people who backed McCain. Robert talks with two delegates after the speech about their reaction to McCain's speech, and whether they now support George W. Bush. This week has been a huge exercise in persuasion for those McCain supporters -- as they attempt to harness their enthusiasm for McCain to the Bush bandwagon.
