Is Obama's press shield slipping?

CBS News highlights the interior of the renovated Obama campaign plane, features a picture of the rather startling large seat labeled "President" reserved for the candidate.

His chair has his name and campaign logo embroidered on the back top -- "Obama ‘08" on one line and "President" underneath.

 Mockingly calling the plane "O Force One", reporter Allison O'Keefe quotes Politico's Mike Allen,

"Typically the candidate's cabin is like business class -- roomier and less chaotic than the staff and press areas, but still short of the accoutrements of a pro team's charter," says Politico's Mike Allen, a frequent campaign flier.

Considering the fuss engendered by the McCain ad "The One", this peek behind the curtain at the premature title Obama has granted himself adds to the candidate's woes. Comuing from CBS News, this is surprising. When J.R. Dunn first mentioned the seat in an AT article a week ago, many people were surprised to read of it, demonstrating that the press shield was at work. Now it seems to be slipping.
