Well, here is a quaint, little item. Who got the story, besides CBS News? I failed to find anyone else coming up quickly, on search results pages. Was CBS News believed to be especially sensitive about a subject such as this, by the Obama machinery?

    Jan. 13, 2009 (CBS) President-elect Barack Obama will visit the Supreme Court tomorrow, according to his transition office, reports CBS News correspondent Steve Chaggaris.

    At the invitation of Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr., Mr. Obama and Vice President-elect Joe Biden will pay a protocol visit to the Supreme Court of the United States Wednesday afternoon, the office says.

    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 Dec. 8, 1992.

    On Nov. 19, 1980, Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush made the same visit.

    Mr. Obama and Biden will visit with the justices in the ceremonial West Conference Room.

    The visit is private; reporters and photographers will not be present.

I might have excerpted the story in case CBS is unappreciative of fair use doctrine, but it is so brief that excerpting becomes difficult. More here, after I do a bit of searching: "Steve Chaggaris"

Searching in the CBS News site done: Steve Chaggaris is "CBS News Political Director." As in directing viewers and readers, politically, via CBS News? Sounds rather like good ol' Dan, if so. And as I gather, his latest stories have been all about telling us how important Barack Obama is, as he embarks upon the salvation of the presidency at this historically critical time. Well, except that his immediately prior article is entitled, "Michelle Obama Picks White House Decorator." Obviously, a tough, critical newsman, in the post-WWII CBS mold.

Edward R. Mur — I mean Mr. Chaggaris seems to have an ear to the lips of the Obama ascendancy.

And, how do you think the conversation will go, between Bogus POTUS — Bogus Elect Obama and Chief Justice Roberts?

    Good day, Mr. President-Elect.

    Why, good day to you, Chief Justice Roberts; um... uh... so! Read any letters from Orly Taitz, lately?

    Well, Barry-er may I call you, "Barack?" No, I'm sorry, too informal. You see, Mr. President-Elect Soeto-oh-oh-Obama, I've been hearing the darnedest things about you! Please, have a seat and tell me a little about yourself. Begin at the v-e-r-r-y beginning, if you can — that's the natural place to start, eh? I mean, wherever that place happens... to be.

Alas, we will have to guess how it really goes/went. "The visit is private; reporters and photographers will not be present." Then again, we simple Sovereign Citizens are used to just having to guess about all this.
