Obama's to vacation on Martha's Vineyard

OAK BLUFFS, Mass. -- Martha's Vineyard could be the summer vacation spot for the Obama family. 

It hasn't been confirmed yet, but sources said the First Family has rented a house for two weeks at the end of August in the East Chop area of Oak Bluffs.

"He's not the first one, Bill Clinton came to the vineyard," says one Massachusetts resident.
The Clintons vacationed on the Vineyard in the 1990s.  President Obama has been to the Vineyard several times before, once after the 2004 Democratic Convention.

"It's a presidential tradition!" says another Massachusetts resident.
Store owners believe the potential visit by the Obama family would boost business on the struggling island.
