The Real Barack Obama

There has been a report that Barack Obama, possible candidate for the Democratic nomination for President, was seen last Friday night, on his way home from Washington, asleep on plane, in economy, with a biography of Robert Kennedy next to him.

One U.K paper draws the comparison between one candidate heading to Iowa with a 10 car cavalcade, a massive entourage and dozens if not hundreds of media in tow - and the other, who was alone, asleep, in economy after a long week's work in Washington.

Yes, it's a contrast.

So is it true? If Barack just a regular guy? These stories sometimes take on a life of their own, but nothing has emerged yet to dispute it.
