    Obama went here.

    The 2005 Chrysler 300C once owned by Barack Obama is now drawing bids of more than $100,000 on eBay. It's Blue Book value is $13,500. That puts the value on Obamaness at at least $90,000.

    With that kind of profit margin, we expect the following items to make it to eBay soon.
