A day after winning title as ABC “chief anchor,” George Stephanopoulos hitched a ride on Air Force One to Minnesota Thursday for an interview with President Obama.

ABC said that the interview will air on the two shows the former Clinton White House communications director hosts, "Good Morning America" and "This Week.”
