AMMAN, Jordan--The Obama campaign plane landed here at 6:10 p.m. local time Monday after a long and uneventful flight, except for the abundant food and my new $49 air power cord not charging the battery of my MacBook. Finally, the poorly kept secret secret can be told officially--Obama makes a quick visit to Jordan before heading to Israel and Europe.

The man we are covering--Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.), the presumptive Democratic nominee, is in Iraq. He catches up with us tomorrow.

I thought this was an official US Congressional trip with Sen. Obama and two other US Senator's? Is this guy running for World President? Have I missed a world election before without voting?

No, you nor I missed voting in the "world election." Jot this down, the " world election" is on November 4, 2008 in the United States of America.

YES WE CAN
Obama 08/12

DR. KING WOULD BE VERY PROUD OF BARACK OBAMA!
JFK WOULD BE VERY PROUD OF BARACK OBAMA!
RFK WOULD BE VERY PROUD OF BARACK OBAMA!
I WISH MORE AMERICANS WOULD BE PROUD OF BARACK
OBAMA!

I don't understand why the change and the taking away of the American Flag.. Did i miss something? Is he representing America or OBama?
"IF" he should be elected president. "GOD FORBID". He will fly in the AirForce 1 aircraft "WITH" the AMERICAN FLAG ON IT..AND the Presidental Seal on it...True??? the background of he picture didn't even look real..And who paid for the fuel to fly this non-American looking plane???? Give me a break.. I want an AMERICAN PRESIDENT ALL THE WAY.. NOT MR "O"..
