President (soon to be) Barack Obama's New Daily Ride

Riding on GM's Top Kick medium duty platform, this Cadillac is more truck than car. It apparently has a curb weight of 10k lbs, and features armor 5" thick!

Impressive. the article states this is similar to the limo that bush currently has, i wonder if they get to keep them when they are voted out, if not i wonder what they do with them.

Emergency blood? Nice. Too bad it only goes 60mph but makes sense considering how much it weighs.

Wouldn't an RX7 be a fire starting system?

You know this brings up a lot of issues that are big concerns right now. The US is really worried that someone is going to attempt to assassinate Obama. So far the KKK says they don't have any violent intentions (but why would they say anyways...), but they plan to all wear black bands on their arms during the inauguration, and fly American flags outside their house upside down. Then apparently Obama is taking some train ride across the United states or something, and they're saying it's a security nightmare. Even environmental groups are concerned, because they're thinking someone will try to blow up a chemical / power plant next to the railroad to take him out. A lot of this could just be fear mongering by the media, but I would think that there's some truths in there. I know I'd be finding the most secure vehicle available to me if I was him.

The vehicles made to carry the president have been made to such extremes for quite some time, this is just the latest incarnation.

Looks like a pretty badass ride =D
