Obama, Clinton to cross paths at Martha's Vineyard soiree

Posted:

EDGARTOWN, Mass. (AP) -- President Barack Obama is expected to rub shoulders with Hillary Rodham Clinton at a civil rights leader's soiree on Martha's Vineyard.

Both Obama and the Democratic presidential front-runner are expected to attend Vernon Jordan's 80th birthday party on Saturday on the swanky Massachusetts island. They'll be joined by a number of other big-name corporate, civil rights and political leaders slated to attend.

But don't expect photos of the glitzy event. Reporters and photographers covering Obama's vacation on Martha's Vineyard aren't permitted to attend.

Jordan is an attorney and business executive who advised former President Bill Clinton. He also played a prominent role in the civil rights movement and has known the Obamas for decades.

Last year both Obama and Clinton attended a party Jordan hosted on the island.
