Obama to return early to Washington

Associated Press

KAILUA, Hawaii — President Barack Obama is spending Christmas Day with his family at a rented vacation home in his native Hawaii.

White House officials have not released the details of all the first family’s Christmas Day activities. On Tuesday morning, Obama traveled from the suburban Honolulu home to a Marine Corps base for a workout.

The Obama family flew to Hawaii from Washington on Friday night. White House officials have not announced when the president is expected to go back to Washington but say he is likely to curtail his holiday vacation, perhaps returning as early as Wednesday.

In the past, Obama has spent 10 to 14 days in Hawaii at Christmastime. Budget negotiations with lawmakers over the so-called fiscal cliff have complicated this year’s trip.
