There is really no down time when you are the President and First Lady. The job and duties follow you wherever you go. The Obamas visited the Marine Base in Hawaii on Christmas Day to thank the Marines for their service. And while the Obama family, with friends from Chicago and boyhood pals of the president from Honolulu, have been resting, playing tennis and golf and hitting the beach and eating out since arriving on Christmas Eve, the President's vacation has also included early morning national security briefings on the attempt to destroy Detroit-bound Flight 253. Safety and security of the Nation is top Priority -- vacation or not.
