West Wing Week: "Magic Mountains & Volcanoes"

This week's White House video recap of President Obama's activities opens with his visit on Tuesday to Ross' restaurant in Bettendorf, Iowa, where he was wowed by the supersized "Magic Mountain" and "Volcano" sandwiches sold by owner Cynthia Freidhof.

Onscreen, the President and the excited restaurateur explain to reporters that The Magic Mountain is grilled Texas toast with loose steamed hamburger meat, piled high with a choice of French fries or hash browns, homemade cheddar cheese, and onions, while The Volcano is the Magic Mountain with the addition of a scoop of spicy chili on top. The President met Freidhof while campaigning in Iowa in 2008.
