BETTER TO OWN IT:

Obama vacations where the elite meet (NIA-MALIKA HENDERSON, 8/23/09, Politico)

“The danger for President Obama is that he seems to be in what is one of the most elite summer resorts in the United States. From an image-making point of view, it would be better to be in the Wisconsin Dells or Put-in-Bay, Ohio,” said Douglas Brinkley, a presidential historian. “There is the connotation with Martha’s Vineyard of East Coast elitism…I have a feeling when they decided on Martha’s Vineyard they didn’t know the health care debate would be this brutal.”

Just imagine how unnatural, how John Kerry-like, he'd look engaging in anything other than an elitist pursuit. This is a guy who made bowling seem harder than brain surgery and bike riding geeky.
