The United States Secret Service has torn the camouflage off the latest Cadillac DTS presidential limousine in time for President-elect Barack Obama's Inauguration next Tuesday.
Despite the rumors, Escalades and hybrids were out of the question (Tahoes, however, are the SUV of choice for the men in black). Based on GM's heavy-duty truck platform, the DTS is well over three tons and won't return more than 20 miles per gallon, which means Obama must offset his carbon footprint immediately. Hillary Clinton will ensure that - on Day One.
There are no other juicy details to share, but count on Jay-Z and Beyonce to spill some beans after the parties.
