Subject: In-town pool #2 -- at the Supreme Court
The president and first lady entered the Great Hall of the Supreme Court at 3:38pm. to view Justice Scalia's casket, after spending about 15 minutes in another room out of our view, apparently meeting with others.
Other poolers saw the president shake hands with Chief Justice Roberts as he first entered the building. The Obamas walked slowly into the Great Hall, both dressed in black, and stood by the casket for a minute or so, hands clasped before them, heads bowed at one point. They then walked over to a portrait of the justice.
An honor guard of the justice's former clerks stood by the casket. Floral arrangements of red, white and blue flanked the portrait, with soft chandelier light bathing the marble room.
The casket rests on the Lincoln Catafalque, which was loaned to the court by Congress for the ceremony, and a 2007 portrait of Scalia by Nelson Shanks is displayed at one end of the hall.
The public is viewing the casket from 10:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.
