(CNN) - Barack Obama and his family are on their way to Hawaii aboard the Illinois senator's campaign plane. They'll journey to Oahu, where they will spend several days visiting his extended family.

They've been joined on board by more than a dozen family friends. The section of the plane usually reserved for staff is filled with children under the age of 12.

    We need a president that can related to family time. McCain is to old to have younger children and his kid(s) are grown ups. McCain can't relate to anything other than having his own.

    I want a president that's in touch with the nations interest. Obama seems to care about that because he can relate to taking care of children My vote is for Obama come Novermber.

    Nancy, If you teach your children to be as ignorant as you are, he wouldn't want to take them anywhere! TRUST! If you are so Anti-Obama as you seem, then why did you click on this article. You are just as fascinated by Obama as McCain. Go click on one of his articles.

    As an Obama supporter, I'm calling for everyone who supports Obama to rise to the occasion and stop the "McWar, McSenile, McHate, Mc anything.
    We are better than that. Obama wants to run a positive and issues based election, so let's support him by following in his lead, not by stooping to his opponent's level.
    We can stick to the issues without name calling, slandering, and outright lying to hope for a better America.

    McCain needs help. Somebody ought to call the doctor before the old slides down the pit on our very eyes.
    Obama, call MCCain for what he has become, the oldman is sick, confused, and needs help badly. The "Hiltonian" said right; that she's too hot to provide McCain the adult care he desperately needs in his old age.
    Every unfortunate gel like Brittany Spears, deserves a second chance, for which Mccain denied his ex-wife, Carol McCain. McCain has had so many second chances to be where he is now.
    Somebody tell McSame, everyone deserves a second chance. McCain too old to be ready for the presidency. Is he really, really ready to lead the free world, John McCain? I doubt it.
