Obama Set To Begin Vacation

Eight days at Martha's Vineyard


President Obama begins an eight-day vacation in Martha's Vineyard, Mass., on Saturday, hoping to recharge his battery before tough fights over the budget and debt ceiling this fall.

It's Obama's first extended vacation since he visited Hawaii in December, and comes after a press conference scheduled for Friday afternoon.

Obama and his family will stay at the $7.6 million estate of donor and Chicago private equity executive David Schulte.
