Commander in Chief = Traffic Trouble

When the president has a plane to catch, the world around him seems to come to a standstill, which is why you might want to avoid southbound 101 out of San Francisco.

President Obama, who is staying at the Intercontinental Hotel in San Francisco, is expected to leave for SFO at around 8:30 a.m.

The presidential motorcade will most likely take southbound 101.

In the past, law enforcement has shut down the roadway so the president has a clear path to the airport. Drivers will want to plan accordingly.

Air Force One is scheduled to take off around 9:00 a.m., bound for Seattle, where the president will attend another fundraiser.

That's on top of the three fundraisers he attended in San Francisco -- where he raised an estimated $3 million for his re-election campaign.
