Good news: Its not poison ivy
Bad news: I have no idea what it is and, apparently, neither does anyone else.

|AAAK! Looks like Asian bittersweet to me.....is it a vine? Not an expert but if you pull this out and it has a bright orangey-yellow root....it IS : Celastrus orbiculatus.|
This vine can cause a LOT of damage if it's in the wrong place...beware!

|American Bittersweet? Is it viney or a tree?|

|I didn't refresh my page and so didn't see upat5 answer. In any case, looks like a bittersweet which grows into a very large and spreading vine. The oriental is suppose to be more common so upat5 is probably right.|
