While Vice President Joe Biden is back in Southampton this week on a summer vacation, former President Bill Clinton and his wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, are reportedly spending the month of August in East Hampton.

The New York Times reported that the Clintons rented a house in East Hampton for the month. Dan's Papers reported in May that the couple rented Elie Hirschfeld's Lily Pond Lane house, the same one they rented the past two summers.

In January, it was reported that the Clintons were looking to plant more permanent roots in East Hampton, where they have vacationed several times since Clinton's presidency.

According to The MailOnline, Saunders & Associates, a Bridgehampton-based real estate firm which helped them find the $19 million house to rent, was reportedly helping them in their search.

Last summer, the former president even made a surprise stop at the annual Artists-Writers softball game during a trip to the village. During Hurricane Irene in 2011, the Clintons rode out the storm at their rental home, and Bill Clinton celebrated his 65th birthday at Babette's.

Meanwhile, Biden will be in nearby Southampton until Sunday.

The FAA issued a temporary flight restrictions for the area due to "VIP movement" from Monday through Aug. 12.

That is very nice Heather but there are too many kooks out there and I just plain don't trust people. The last thing anyone needs is some lunatic knocking on your door because they did not like what you said or sending you hate mail or threats.

Heather How about having the courage to use one name, make a commitment to being married A Hyphen is used to divide the opposite of what a marriage should be.

"Heather How about having the courage to use one name, make a commitment to being married A Hyphen is used to divide the opposite of what a marriage should be." Hello - are you living in the dark ages? Why should it matter if a woman (or man) chooses to use more than one last name? It shows a love of parent and spouse to combine the two... and has absolutely nothing to do with celebrities coming to the Hamptons, the sad situation of men cheating on women and getting away with it, the effectiveness of the Clintons in or out of public office, or anything else on this discussion board. But then, here am I, wasting time and space online, scolding you for your Dark Ages opinion - which, of course, you are entitled to feel, think and express. But then, so am I. :D
