HONOLULU, Hawaii (CNN) - How do you spend your time in a state famous for its sunny tropical skies? You spend your afternoon in a movie theater.
Sen. Barack Obama did just that Monday afternoon, taking in a matinee of the latest Batman sequel, 'The Dark Knight' - and giving him an opportunity to assess the acting ability of campaign supporter and Democratic Senate colleague Patrick Leahy of Vermont, who makes a cameo appearance in the blockbuster film.
Watch: Obama arrives in Hawaii for weeklong vacation
Post-movie, Obama went for a 4-star meal for the second time this week: Monday night it was 'Mariposa' at the Honolulu Neiman Marcus. The restaurant's Web site promises exceptional Hawa'in cuisine served on an open air lanai, situated to catch the island's legendary sunsets.
Activities for the Hawai'ian-born presumptive Democratic nominee so far have included a jog along the beach, a round of golf, and a carbeque along the North Shore, which is known for its killer surfing. Obama has also made several visits to his grandmother, who has lived in Honolulu for 50 years and who he affectionately calls his 'Tùtù.'
Have a wonderful family time!!!! You have sooooo much to do when you get back!!!! You will be busy 24/7 and you can handle it! McCain can only work 3 or 4 days a week and he needs a break!!! WE DO NOT need another "vacation" president!!! Go Obama!
He's on vacation. CNN, why are you reporting about someone on vacation? He went to a movie and visited his grandmother. WOW, big news.
Please wait until he gets back and hits the campaign trail again.
CNN posted this article just so the goons can have another moment of Obama bashing.
PLEASE....OBAMA STAY THERE UNTIL AFTER THE ELECTION>
So? He is on vacation while McCain is talking to the American people, just like he was in Europe while McCain was here talking about the economy. Don't screw up and lose this one Obama.
Gee thanks for telling us working folks who cannot afford such luxuries because we are trying to save money for fuel this winter.
Please leave the man along and let him enjoy his vacation. What the hell is McCain doing today....where was he last night...what type of restaurant did he eat at....I swear CNN is so lame...they do a poll about Obama being overexposed then they spend everyday putting up articles about him. Just give it a rest and report on the war or something.
CNN, keep reaching..............maybe you will find some news there or just tabloid reporting!!!
Good God, when did CNN become People magazine?
Boy, I wish I had the money to travel outside the mainland twice in one year. What an elitist!
Where's The news?
What a waste of time to report this....
In other news, at 3:40am Obama woke up and went to the bathroom... Come on CNN, who cares what he's doing on his vacation.
It's always good to see the human side of our leaders.
No Obamabots asking why this is news?
This is what American apple pie is all about.
Work hard, take a vacation, enjoy family life, take care of elders, have good friends, good food, good converstion.
Stay away from McInsanes & CNN on the beach, stay away from foreign politics, make only a sensible comment on Georgia (let Bush handle-that is his problem), let McCain& PUMAS go insane , let America read Mark Penn's garbage.
Oh Cutie American Apple Pie! Come home with TAN and win the election.
enjoy your relaxing holiday and enjoy your family, senator obama. come back refreshed and ready to fight the garbage people, including the traitorous clintons and their gang!
WE ARE BEHIND YOU 1000000%
Pelosi is doing more than Obama on foreign policy. Maybe she should be a candidate for Central Committee.
I've really enjoyed BHO's vacation. What a great week!!!
You deserved your vacation sir, with your family. Enjoy it and come back stronger against Mcswain. Can wait to watch the debates.
We all know Obama's on vacation. How is this important on the Political Ticker?
A well deserved couple of days break after many months with no days off.
Very nice of him to treat himself for a well deserved vac.
Hope he is refresh and ready for the next battle.
Thanks CNN! We do love to hear what the rich and famous celebrities are doing on their vacation these days....
