It is beyond even my imagination what Obama Conspiracy Theorists will make of this, but it was announced last night that Barack Obama and Joe Biden will be visiting the Supreme Court sometime today. This has been a common practice for Presidents-elect in recent years.
“At the invitation of Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr., President-elect Barack Obama and Vice President-elect Joseph Biden will pay a pre-inaugural visit to the Supreme Court of the United States tomorrow afternoon, January 14. This will mark the third time in recent history that a President-elect and Vice President-elect have visited the Court. William Clinton and Al Gore visited on December 8, 1992. Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush called on the Court on November 19, 1980. The President-elect and Vice President-elect will join the Chief Justice and the Associate Justices in the ceremonial West Conference Room. They may also join in a tour of the Court. The visit is a private event. There will be no photo or press availabilities.”
