Obama’s summer vacation contest--last call for entries!

It’s last call for entries to the Loop’s contest suggesting destinations for where the Obamas should go on their family vacation this summer.

We asked for your help in identifying destinations that might be fun for the whole family--but perhaps more importantly, places that are politically advantageous. Martha’s Vineyard, where the Obamas have visited in summers past, seems to be out this election year. So where should they go? Nowhere too posh (bad optics!), and maybe somewhere geographically desirable (a swing state, perhaps?).

The deadline for submitting your ideas is midnight on Friday, June 29. Don’t miss the chance to play travel agent for the First Family!

Our five funny favorites will win coveted Loop T-shirts — perfect for wearing on your own summer vacation.

You can leave your entry as a comment on the blog — you may want to double-check that there’s an active e-mail address associated with your log-in. You can also e-mail us at (Please make sure to include a home or cellphone number so we can contact you.)
