| 4 Comments

CHARLOTTE, N.C.--Since July, the current Obama campaign plane, the bird with the rising O on the tail, has been the home away from home for staff, journalists and Secret Service agents. Many have nested. The photographers on board have made the cabin of the plane where reporters ride a remarkable record--sometimes irreverent--of the campaign. Newseum, this one's for you.

hey lynn, just wanted to drop a note saying that i've really enjoyed reading your blog over the course of the campaign for the insider/chicago perspective.

thanks.

Can you please post more pictures of the historical plane !!!

Great shots. From these pictures it looks like the press corps is almost exclusively white males. Talk about needing change.

OBAMA JUST BAGGED THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM!
ADIOS AND MAY WE NEVER SPEAK AGAIN TO DEAR JOHN
AND SNL'S NEWEST CAST MEMBER!
