Timothy Egan raises an interesting point in today's Times:



President George W. Bush preferred to spend his downtime in the reddest part of Texas; he took 77 trips to his sun-scorched patch of dirt near Waco during his two terms, and reality rarely intruded. President Obama likes his air on Martha’s Vineyard, bluest of provinces, where he’s now vacationing for the fourth time since he took office.

A president who can’t hear a back-porch fiddler in Tennessee, eat a buffalo burger in the Badlands of South Dakota or check out the truly awful array of yard-art trolls from chain-saw artisans off old Highway 2 is missing more than a story to drag back home.



In other words, presidents don't need color-coded vacations where Democrats stay in blue areas and Republicans stay in red areas.
