WASHINGTON — In a departure from the increasingly nasty environment of the presidential campaign, Barack Obama and John McCain will make a joint appearance on Thursday in New York to honor the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001 , terrorist attacks.

It’s the kind of civility that the public says it wants in politics but rarely gets.

“It says that despite all the differences, they agree broadly on issues of patriotism and the need to oppose the forces that caused 9/11,” said John Geer , the editor of The Journal of Politics .

The candidates plan to visit the site of the World Trade Center, which was destroyed in the terrorist attack seven years ago. They also have agreed to suspend television ads on Thursday. Source Article
