More evidence of a candidate faux pas. "O-Force One" as CBS' Allison O'Keefe describes Obama's campaign plane, contains a luxurious section for the candidate more reminiscent of an airborne corporate executive suite than a presidential candidate who has to appeal to working class American voters.

Check out this description of his personal quarters on O-Force One: “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.”

Sen. McCain, no slouch he when it comes to campaign trail luxury, sits in his smaller plane's first class section. But it is not outfitted with individual La-Z-Boy seats: "CBS News’ John Bentley, who's covering the John McCain campaign, reports that McCain flies in a slightly smaller Boeing 737, which has four compartments: the first class area, where he sits; the “straight talk” area for interviews; a business class section for staffers; and the back of the plane, where the press and secret service sit."

Moral of the story: When you're seeking working class votes, fly Greyhound.
