Chris Coleman may never run for President of the United States. But that doesn't mean he can't travel like one.

Coleman hitched a ride to the Twin Cities aboard Air Force One with President Barack Obama, according to a press pool report. The mayor said it was his first time aboard the airplane. Obama was scheduled to make a couple of appearances in Minnesota on Thursday.

According to the report, Coleman was flying with U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison. The mayor toured the plane and poked his head in the back to say hello to the press pool.
