Obamas' to head for Martha's Vineyard for summer vacation

By Super Admin

Washington, July 6 (ANI): For their summer vacation, the Obamas are reportedly headed to Martha's Vineyard.

The trip, however, could come with some complications for the first family, reports Politico.

By heading in that direction, the Obamas are setting themselves up for comparisons to the Clintons, who traveled there on more than one occasion, most notably after the Lewinsky scandal broke.

Vernon Jordan, a close associate of the Clintons, is a presence on the island - and there have been reports that Chelsea Clinton will be married at his home.

The island boasts a heady mix of Hollywood, money and politics.

Obama also has old friends in the town of Oak Bluffs, a go-to spot for influential African-Americans including Spike Lee and Henry Louis Gates.

What has Obama going for him in visiting Martha's Vineyard?

"This vacation will be perceived in a completely different way because of the kids. It's going to be cast in a very different light. There are great things for the kids to do. There's the oldest merry-go-round in the country in Oak Bluffs. There are beaches and fudge shops. It's not just about hobnobbing with rich people," said one expert.

The Obamas'"need to find a place where they can relax, which the others did by going to their own homes," said author and historian Doris Kearns Goodwin. (ANI)
