Obama's New Campaign Trail Ride

Air Force One is so 2000's. According to ABC News, this is President Obama's new mode of transportation; an armored bus, stocked with secret communications technology, and with flashing police-style red and blue lights on the front and the back.

The vehicle was commissioned by the Secret Service, which has always hired buses for election campaigns and retrofitted them to provide suitable protection for presidents and rival party nominees. (Photo: Jim Watson/AFP/Getty Images)
