Obama, Biden go see the Supremes


When President-elect Barack Obama and Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr. come face to face at next week’s inauguration , it will not be the first time the two have a chance to chat.

Obama and Roberts, along with Vice President-elect Joe Biden and the rest of the Supreme Court’s justices, will get together Wednesday afternoon at the Supreme Court.

Obama and Biden will go to the Court at the invitation of Roberts, who clearly is not holding a grudge against the men for voting against his confirmation when they were in the Senate. They will mingle with the other justices, and possibly get a tour of the place, according to The Washington Post.

DC Dicta won’t be able to tell you what happens in today’s meeting. Reporters and cameras are not allowed.
