Martha's Vineyard Excited at Obama Coming
Obamas to Vacation at Blue Heron Farm
Here is video on the excitement Martha's Vineyard has as President Obama and family head there this weekend to begin a week long vacation on "The Vineyard." A microbrewery is even preparing a special brew called "Ale to the Chief" in Obama's honor.
Obama and family will reportedly vacation at the $25,000 per week Blue Heron Farm (see video above), and rumors abound as to what Obama will do during his time on The Vineyard. Rumors include that he will golf with Tiger Woods, attend a possible wedding of Chelsea Clinton, or even visit a seriously ill Ted Kennedy who is suffering from brain cancer. The White House says Obama's focus will be on vacationing.
He was scheduled to fly to the Vineyard tomorrow. There were reports that First Lady Michelle Obama and their children were already there.
Obama has rented the luxurious, 28-acre Blue Heron farm, paying rent of more than $25,000 out of his pocket. The Secret Service and the White House are contributing to expenses.
The White House said golfing, Obama's latest passion, would be on the agenda but didn't confirm rumors that he'd play a round with Tiger Woods, who is scheduled to arrive for a tournament soon.
A recent visit by Bill Clinton fueled rumors of a possible wedding for former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton on the island today, although Secretary of State Hillary Clinton denied it.
