Martha's Vineyard Plays Proud Host to Obamas
By Michael D. Shear
"Today's Special," it reads. "Barack O'Brownie Sundae." Ingredients: "Barocky Road, Barack-o-Brownie, Whipped Cream, Nuts, Cherry, Hot Fudge."
The island of Martha's Vineyard has hosted Barack Obama before, but not like this. He was here five, maybe six times in the past decade. But never as president. And that makes all the difference.
Signs everywhere welcome the president to the island, despite the fact that few people who live and work here are likely to even glimpse the commander in chief, who remains largely holed-up in his exclusive, 28-acre resort on the southwest side of the island.
A few lucky folks might catch a glimpse of the First Motorcade as it speeds across the tiny island. It's hard to miss here. And some might see him on the semi-private golf course.
