President-elect Barack Obama on Thursday bid his native Hawaii "aloha" after a 12-day vacation. Obama, wife Michelle and their two young daughters flew to Chicago where they are expected to arrive early Friday. The Obamas planned to go on to Washington this weekend where the president-elect was expected to meet Monday with congressional leaders to talk about the economy and the legislative agenda generally, according to a senior congressional aide. Obama will meet with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, then join with them in a meeting with Republican leaders, said the aide, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he had not been authorized to discuss the plans. One reason that the Obamas plan to fly to Washington on Sunday is because 7-year-old Sasha and 10-year-old Malia start school on Monday.
