Obama, Clinton could collide on Vineyard

President Obama and Hillary Clinton will both be on Martha’s Vineyard next month at the same time, The Boston Globe reports.

Clinton is scheduled to sign copies of her memoir Hard Choices at the Bunch of Grapes Bookstore in Vineyard Haven on Aug. 13. She’s considered the 2016 Democratic front-runner for president if she decides to enter the race.

The trip by Clinton overlaps with Obama's Aug. 9-23 vacation at Martha's Vineyard.

The bookstore appears to only be a 25-minute drive away from Chilmark, Mass., which is where the Obamas will be staying, according to Martha's Vineyard Times.

It’s unclear, however, if the two will meet up.

The president and his family have vacationed on the island every year since he took office, except 2012 because of his reelection campaign, the report noted.

This year, locals told the Times that the Obamas will be staying in a seven-bedroom, nine-bathroom house worth an estimated $12 million that overlooks the Vineyard Sound. 

Joanne Hubschman owns the home, which features 17 rooms in total, a hot tub, infinity pool, and a tennis-basketball court. Hubschman’s late husband was a former executive at General Electric.

The Obamas vacationed last December in Hawaii, which is where the president grew up.
