president-elect obama meets the supreme court

the field negro, has a photo of president-elect obama's recent meeting with members of the supreme court. in fn's picture one can see chief justice roberts and justices john paul stevens, ruth bader ginsburgh, clarence thomas and david souter. all republican appointees except justice ginsburgh.

meanwhile, devvy kidd complains that it's inappropriate for the justices to meet with the president-elect when there are pending cases on the supreme court's docket in which obama is the defendant.
