President Barack Obama called himself a "great admirer" of Pope Francis as he sat down at the Vatican Thursday.
WASHINGTON - Bruce Springsteen will be back campaigning for President Barack Obama.
The musician will join former President Bill Clinton at a Thursday rally in Parma, two days after the second presidential debate. Obama will not attend the rally.
Springsteen also will appear at a campaign event Thursday in Ames, Iowa.
Springsteen campaigned for Obama in 2008, but these will be his first political appearances of the 2012 cycle. Clinton is a prominent campaigner for Obama.
Clinton and Springsteen's joint appearance in Ohio underscores the importance of the key swing state. Polls show Obama with a slight lead there over Mitt Romney, but the Republican presidential candidate is spending an increasing amount of time and resources in the state ahead of Election Day.
The event will be held at Cuyahoga Community College in Parma, and is free and open to the public. Doors to the event will open at 11 a.m. Thursday, and tickets are required for entrance.
One ticket per person will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. Tickets will be available on Tuesday, October 16, from 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. at the following locations:
