James Taylor, Diane Sawyer, David Letterman, Larry David, Alan Dershowitz, Spike Lee, Meg Ryan, Henry Gates, Ted Danson, Mary Steenburgen, Quincy Jones,and Carly Simon all have homes there, to name but a few. This was the home of Walter Cronkite and James Cagney, as well. Ted Kennedy enjoyed himself there immensely until that incident at the Chappaquiddick bridge.
The Vineyard has long been sought after by high profile elitists who desire a location that doesn’t accommodate the rabble and is less than helpful to the paparazzi.
The early buzz on the island today was that President Obama may swing by an evening political fundraiser in Oak Bluffs that will feature some of his more well-known friends and supporters. But at 6:30 p.m. the White House said the family would be in for the night.
The fundraiser for Obama was being held at the Union Chapel Bluffs at 6 p.m., according to the website barackobama.com. Harvard professors Charles Ogletree and Alan Dershowitz, author Geraldine Brooks and Geoffrey Fletcher, who wrote the screenplay to the movie “Precious,” are expected to attend, among others, the website says.
Afterward, a dinner and reception was to be held at the Oak Bluffs home of Ron and Judy Davenport, according to the web site. The Davenports hosted a presidential campaign fundraiser for Obama back in 2007.
Obama went ahead with the 10-day trip despite some criticism that his choice of vacation spot is inappropriate given the state of the economy. The upscale island resort is a summer hangout for the wealthy and the well-connected.
