Obama back from vacation in Hawaii
CHICAGO (AP) ó President-elect Barack Obama and his family have returned to Chicago from their 12-day holiday in Hawaii.
Obama’s chartered plane landed early Friday morning in his hometown, where thermometers showed a chilly 30 degrees. When he left Honolulu about eight hours earlier, temperatures were in the 70s.
Obama, wife Michelle and their two young daughters stayed at a rented $9 million beach-front home while on the island of Oahu. They had no public events and largely stayed out of sight.
The Obamas are expected to fly to Washington on Sunday ó well ahead of his Jan. 20 inauguration ó so his daughters can start school on Monday.
