Is there anything about President Obama the right WON’T complain about?
Obama is interrupting what so far has probably been a leisurely vacation to campaign and help raise money for Hillary Clinton. Obama has said there’s never been anyone more qualified than Clinton, who was his rival in the 2008 presidential contest and his first-term secretary of state, to be president.
Obama is scheduled to headline a Democratic Party fundraising reception Monday evening on Martha’s Vineyard, the island off the coast of Massachusetts where he is for a two-week vacation with his wife, Michelle, and their daughters Malia and Sasha.
Democrats Hank Goldberg and his wife, Carol, are hosting the event at their home in Chilmark, the same town where the president is renting a vacation home.
Obama will deliver remarks, but the media will not be permitted to hear his answers to questions asked by some of the donors in attendance. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Hillary Victory Fund, a joint fundraising effort aiding her campaign, the Democratic National Committee and state parties across the country.
The White House said Obama is eager to hit the campaign trail and be as helpful as possible to fellow Democrats. After the scheduling worked out, he agreed to interrupt his golf, beach and dinner outings to appear at the fundraiser and give Clinton a boost.
