Obama waved to onlookers as he passed through the doorway into Marine One en route to Andrews Air Force Base, Md. earlier today but the 6-foot-1 commander in chief misjudged the door height as he entered the helicopter and bumped his head.

Former president George W. Bush had a similarly embarrassing moment in 2005 when he tried to push past a locked door during a Beijing press conference.
