McCain Asks Obama About $11.2 Billion Copter Plan

Sen. John McCain was concerned about his former rival's plan to buy a new fleet of Marine One helicopters that will cost $11.2 billion, an amount that is over-budget.

Obama responds (via AP): Obama said the helicopter he has now seems adequate, adding that he never had a helicopter before and "maybe I've been deprived and I didn't know it."

Obama said he has already talked to Defense Secretary Robert Gates about reviewing the program and its ballooning costs.
