Senator Obama is flying in style these days. CBS News' Allison O'Keefe reports today on the regal setting aboard "O-force One", complete with a throne for the man himself.
From the article: "Obama’s section of the plane rivals that of any first class. Recently the front cabin of the Boeing 757 was retrofitted to install four individual chairs that resemble La-Z-Boys. They are free-standing and made of plush leather with pockets on the sides. There is also a booth which seats four for a meeting or a meal."
After seeing some of the photos, Politico's Mike Allen remarked that “Air Force One may seem a tad claustrophobic.” Having already improved on the Presidential seal and touring the world as the presumptive Leader of Earth and one we've been waiting for, it should hardly be a shock to discover that The One has decided to change the plane as well.

Isn't neat how he's already the President when he's on his plane? Just like he's already the President when he's in Germany.
This is not the first upgrade Senator Obama has made to his ride. He had a nice new paint job for his world tour:
When you're the biggest celebrity in the world you need a big plane. This one is, like the hummer copter, powered by hope ... And a whole lot of gas.
Consider this an open thread.
