Back in 2004, when the President was just a skinny senator from Illinois, he leased a Chrysler sedan. Last February, a Chicago restaurant manager named Tim O'Boyle was out car-shopping and unknowingly stumbled upon it (it has a V-8 engine, GPS navigation system, sunroof, leather seats, chrome wheels and Obama put 19,000 miles on the ride over the course of 3 years). Now he's put the Obamamobile on eBay bidding ends next month and the highest bid is currently above $150,000. That's good value compared to the $20,000 someone bid for a waffle and sausage Obama ordered at a diner during the primary campaign.
