President Obama's first meal on Air Force One

National Geographic Channel ran a show last night called "On Board Air Force One". The show ended with scenes of President Elect Obama's flight from Chicago to Washington for the inauguration (so technically it could not be called "Air Force One" on that flight since that call sign only applies when the President is on board.) Here is a video clip of this portion of the show:

He ordered a burger, medium well (oh, Mr. President), cheddar cheese, dijon mustard, lettuce and tomato. He also asks for a side salad or vegetables it they have it, at which point the steward asked him "So no fries or anything like that?". Mr. Obama quickly replied "Oh, I'll still take the fries!"

I had to laugh.
