Obama, McCain Discuss Pricey Helicopters


The president calls on his former rival first when taking questions at the end of Monday’s financial responsibility summit.

McCain points that new Marine One helicopters are expected to cost as much as Air Force One.

Obama agrees with the concern, says he’s raised it with Secretary Gates. Adds that he thinks his current helicopter is just fine. “Of course, I’ve never had a helicopter before.”
