Hawaii tourism operators don't mind that the president will spend his upcoming vacation in Martha's Vineyard. He's been good for business anyway, reports our Suzi Parker. Discover Hawaii Tours has created the first Obama "kane" (or boyhood) tour through Honolulu. The popular bus tour stops at the Baskin-Robbins where a teenage Obama scooped cones and the Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children, where the president was born.
