Posted: Updated:

According to President-elect Obama's transition team, Obama and Joe Biden will visit the Supreme Court tomorrow afternoon:

At the invitation of Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr., President-elect Barack Obama and Vice President-elect Joe Biden will pay a protocol visit to the Supreme Court of the United States tomorrow afternoon. This will mark the third time in recent history a President-elect and Vice President-elect have visited the Court. The last such visit was made by Bill Clinton and Al Gore on December 8, 1992. The first visit was on November 19, 1980, when Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush called on the Court. The President-elect and Vice President-elect will visit with the Chief Justice and the Associate Justices in the ceremonial West Conference Room where Obama and Biden will sign the same guest book signed by Clinton and Gore in 1992. Following the signing of the guest book, the Chief Justice and the President-elect and Vice President-elect will join the Justices on a brief tour of the Courtroom and the Justices' Conference Room. This is the room where the nine Justices meet in private to decide pending cases. The visit is a private event. There will be no photo or press availabilities.
