Hat tip to my colleague and fellow journo-blogger Jon Ostrower for getting an exclusive promo clip of President-elect Barack Obama’s first ride aboard the C-32 (a modified Boeing 757).

I’ve actually had the pleasure of flying this jet to Europe with then-Secretary of Defense Bill Cohen. I recommend the halibut — but I’m sure Obama wasn’t disappointed with the cheeseburger.

(That was a weird trip, by the way. To keep up appearances, Cohen was required to attend the change-of-command ceremonies for Gen Wesley Clark, the victor of Serbia whom Cohen had essentially fired. That dynamic made for several awkward moments with Cohen’s traveling press pool.)
