(Newser) – The Obama's week-long vacation in Martha’s Vineyard brings the president close to Sen. Ted Kennedy's Hyannis Port vacation home, but the First Family has no plans to visit the ailing senator, reports WCVB Boston. The White House deputy press secretary shot down another "bad rumor" that Obama would play golf with Tiger Woods.

"He wants you to relax," the sandals-clad staffer told the press corps. "Have a good time, take some walks on the beaches. Nobody's looking to make any news."
