Man of the People?

Oh yeah. On Monday WaPo reported that Washington Dulles International Airport transformed a 9,400-foot runway into a parking lot for visitors with their own aircraft, planning to attend the inauguration. By 1:30 p.m. Monday, 119 private planes were lined up, said Courtney Mickalonis, a spokeswoman for the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority. It was anticipated that number could reach 500 by Tuesday, a record.

The prior record was held by GW. His 2005 inauguration brought in 300 private jets.
