Lookout, Obama! The Peace Train Goes Sailing Around Martha's Vineyard

Martha's Vineuard is abuzz over a presidential visit for which locals are even sporting caps featuring an image of the presidential pooch. According to The Times of London, the presidential vacation comes at a time when Obama is also catching "a cold wave of unrest" from the right.
