Will the president have a renewed appreciation for the national park system? Will he develop a fishery policy more sympathetic to lobstermen, having sampled our signature seafood? Will the views from the top of Cadillac Mountain come to mind when he considers legislation to combat climate change, knowing that dirty air from Midwest coal-burning power plants causes air quality problems there? Will Malia or Sasha want to go to a Maine summer camp? Will the First Lady persuade the president to visit next summer, or to buy a vacation home here after he gets out of office?
What do you think the Obamas will take from their Acadia/MDI visit?
