    Barack Obama and John McCain will cap off their pause in partisan campaigning Thursday at a Columbia University forum where they are expected to lay out their views on national service but keep things civil out of respect for victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.

    The two were headed to the forum, hosted by ServiceNation, after having visited Ground Zero in Manhattan together for a brief ceremony.

    Neither candidate gave remarks at the site of the devastating attacks. The two rivals were greeted by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg before walking with Cindy McCain down into the pit where the World Trade Center once stood. Michelle Obama remained in Chicago where she scheduled no public events Thursday.

    Why did Cindy come with John, but Michelle decided to stay in Chicago? Kinda heartless if you ask me, she should have gone with Barack. They are putting politics aside for a day, the wife should do the same.
