Obama Plans a Hawaiian Break



By Peter Slevin

CHICAGO -- Sen. Barack Obama, preparing for the Democratic National Convention and the long march to November, plans to spend about a week in Hawaii in mid-August, mostly on vacation.

Obama spent a large chunk of his childhood and adolescence in Hawaii, graduating from Punahou School. His maternal grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, still lives there, and the Obama family often took winter vacations to Hawaii before he became a candidate.

Of course, given that he is a candidate, Obama does expect to hold at least one Hawaiian fundraiser.
