Road Blog: Wheels down in Amman, Jordan

by Obama Road Blog, Monday, July 21, 2008 at 05:45 PM

Yesterday, Senator Obama’s traveling staff and press corps took a ride on the recently refurbished and repainted campaign plane. This vessel has been home to the many of us who travel full time with the Senator and we welcomed it back with open arms.

The plane’s first voyage was a particularly auspicious one. We flew to Jordan to meet up with Barack Obama, who is stopping in Amman following a fact-finding tour of Afghanistan and Iraq. He will hold a press conference tomorrow with Senator’s Reed (D-RI) and Hagel (R-NE) to discuss his trip thus far. Barack will also be making stops in Israel, Germany, France, and England before returning home.

We caught up with Senior Foreign Policy Advisor, Richard Danzig, on the plane ride over to Jordan. He was equally excited about the trip: “This a great opportunity for Senator Obama to meet leaders who he will be working with, should Barack become President of the United States, as I hope and expect.” Richard reminded us that these one-on-one meetings on the ground provide a more human element than is otherwise possible, and provide a deeper understanding of populations around the globe.

Enjoy these pictures of this first voyage on the new plane.
