Presidential suites


A sneak preview from the June issue of CMI (which will be online in a couple of weeks): Sen. John F. Kerry, D-Mass., the presumptive Democratic candidate for president, prefers Comfort Inns, Holiday Inns, and the Hotel Fort Des Moines when criss-crossing the country on campaign stops. President George W. Bush likes Marriott and Hilton hotels when he’s on the stump, according to, a site that tracks money spent by the candidates in a variety of areas, including hotels and airfare.

And both candidates are true red, white, and blue in their choice of air carrier: Bush spends the most money on United tickets, Kerry on those from American Airlines.
