THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.
DARYN KAGAN, CNN ANCHOR: We go from Germany to Charleston, South Carolina, that's where we find -- Charleston, West Virginia, that is George W. Bush making his way on the campaign trail and eventually ending up in Philadelphia.
Let's go ahead and listen in to the Texas governor.
(JOINED IN PROGRESS)
GOV. GEORGE W. BUSH (R-TX), PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: ... he said come and give us a chance to show your hospitality.
I'm honored to be here with the first lady of West Virginia and your great governor. Governor, you produce. Thank you all for coming. I'm also pleased to be here with the next congressperson from West Virginia, Shelly Moore (ph). And Miles (ph), thank you for that introduction.
A promise made will be a promise kept for the veterans, for the men and women who have worn our uniform. Miles, I'm honored to be on this stage with people who served our nation, people who when they heard the call: America needs you, the world needs you, freedom needs you, they unhesitatingly said, show me where to show up. I'm proud of our veterans.
And I am proud of the job that Laura Bush did last night at our national convention. I told people, I said: I can't wait for Laura to stand up and share her heart with the American people. I said: I can't wait for America to get to see my good wife because, you see, I think you judge the nature of a man by the company he keeps, and I keep pretty darn good company, don't I?
I hope by the time this convention is over you'll get to hear some of our ideas and platforms, but more importantly you will understand our family's priorities, our priorities are our faith, our priorities are our family, and our priority is the great land we love called America.
Earlier this week I made a presidential decision, I picked my running mate. I told the people of the country when they started speculating about running mates, I said the first criteria will be: Could the person become the president should he or she need to? Could they fulfill the highest office of the land if something went wrong with me. Dick Cheney met that qualification. KAGAN: We've been listening to Texas Gov. George W. Bush as he makes his way on the campaign trail, slowly but surely making his way to Philadelphia where Republicans are gathered for their convention.
