Well, the FAAH 7210.65 (Air Traffic Controller's Handbook) specifies special handling for Air Force One.

I've been a little out of the loop for awhile (haven't been on the boards in over 10 years), but it probably still goes like this:

First, understand that at an Enroute ATC facility, an airspace sector is normally manned by one or two controllers - as workload demands. However, when Air Force One is flying through a sector, it is manned by two controllers AND the the area supervisor.

Of Course sectors can also get manned by controllers just in from break for this situation - (I guarantee, you Don't want to have an issue with the big guy).
