Obama sightings on Martha’s Vineyard have been few and far between. Unlike his Vineyard-vacationing predecessor Bill Clinton who was out and about, the President and his family have kept pretty much to themselves. Here's what several Island-loving Washingtonians told Niteside:
Others reportedly out and about on the Vineyard: Septime Webre, Artistic Director of The Washington Ballet, Sen. Frank Lautenberg, Attorney General Eric Holder and his wife Sharon, Sen. Mark Warner and his wife Lisa Collis, Kate and Tod Sedgwick, newly appointed Amb. to Slovakia, Sarah and Bob Nixon who is working on a documentary about the oceans, Ludmila and Conrad Cafritz, The Hon. Ann Brown and Donald Brown along with summer residents AOL International’s founder Jack Davies and Anne and Vernon Jordan.
No one seemed to mind that there was a Nor'easter brewing across the pond when Niteside was informed that Obama was just spotted on the way to a restaurant State Road.
