FILE - In this Aug. 21, 2011, file photo President Barack Obama waves to people at the take out window at Nancy's Restaurant in Oak Bluffs on Martha's Vineyard, Mass., with Eric Whitaker, center and Valerie Jarrett, partially obscured at right, during a family vacation. Whitaker and Jarrett are two in a circle of tight-lipped friends, who form a core with Martin Nesbitt, not shown, who’ve sustained Obama through good times and bad since his days in Chicago, from Hawaii to Washington to Martha’s Vineyard and back again. They golf with him, they vacation with him, their kids and his kids hang out. To them, he’s Barack, not Mr. President. He can be teased and tease back. (AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster) less
