With the election only weeks away, we all have a choice to make. Some of us already know for whom we'll be pulling the lever, while others may still be on the fence.
Now there's another choice to make. Red State Bourbon or Blue State Bourbon. The first has a elephant on its label, the other, a donkey. Both bottles have the same hand-crafted bourbon whiskey inside, made in Bardstown, Kentucky.
Food in the Field gives a sneak peek into what CNN's team is eating, and the food culture they encounter as they travel the globe. Today's contributor, Senior Photojournalist Mark Walz is based in Washington D.C. He covers the White House and has traveled on Air Force One many times.
It's sometimes like a four-star restaurant in the sky, and sometimes like a favorite down-home diner. The food aboard Air Force One offers first class fare with a home-cooked flair.
I recently flew aboard Air Force One with President Obama, on the way to Jakarta, Indonesia, a 6 hour flight. This was the second of four countries the President visited on his globe-encircling trip.
All the meals served on Air Force One are prepared on board, in the galley by Air Force personnel. One of the Air Force flight stewards confirmed that the President is served the same menu as the rest of the plane. The meals come on gold-rimmed Air Force One china, with beverages in glassware embossed with the Presidential Seal. Silverware comes wrapped inside a folded napkin and held together with a Presidential paper ring. Even the drink napkin says, "Aboard the Presidential Aircraft."
