Live Blogging Obama and McCain’s Visit to Columbia University

In the stretch run of the 2008 presidential campaign Senators Obama and McCain made a stop at Columbia University for a forum on national service on 9/11. Their appearance was billed as a non-partisan but it was inevitable that it would end up feeling like a campaign event. Students at the Journalism school covered the forum. I decided to live blog the forum with a former Marine, who served Iraq and was attending Columbia at the time.

The live blog was linked to by the following blogs:
