Pres. Obama, Aboard First Air Force One Flight, Orders Burger

The inauguration may be behind us, but we're only beginning to get to know President Barack Obama's discerning palate.

In this clip from a National Geographic Channel series titled On Board Air Force One, the then-president-elect rides aboard the presidential plane for the very first time. Dinner is served on the plane, and the nation's leader barely takes a glance at the menu before proclaiming, "I'll see how you guys do a burger."

To watch the video and see how our new president prefers eating his burger,


As it turns out, President Obama orders his burger medium well, with cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, and dijon mustard as the star condiment. The famously health-conscious president requests a salad on the side, but adds, "I'll still take the fries."

Obama's burger preferences are acceptable — with the exception of the medium well part. I'm a little disappointed the president doesn't like his meat a little more rare (it's juicier that way, in my opinion).

Do you approve of how the president orders his burgers? Do you prefer a rare or well-done patty?
