It’s not a huge island, but there’s always room for a lot of big names on Martha’s Vineyard.

Two weeks from now, two of the very biggest names in Democratic politics — President Obama and former secretary of state Hillary Clinton — are set to be there at the same time.

Clinton, seen as her party’s top 2016 White House prospect, is scheduled to sign copies of Hard Choices at the Bunch of Grapes Bookstore in Vineyard Haven on Aug. 13 as part of her book tour, promoting the account of her time as the nation’s chief diplomat.

Meanwhile, Obama is set to be on the Vineyard from Aug. 9-24, according to the Associated Press.


No word on whether a meeting of the former rivals for the 2008 Democratic nomination is the works.
