1/3 of Supreme Court Attended White House Chanukah Party

December 3rd, 2010

Justice Ginsburg, Breyer, and Kagan were chilling at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave last night to spin some dreidels and light the menorah. Here are the President’s remarks:

One third of the Supreme Court is here. (Applause.) One of my favorites, Justice Ginsburg, is hiding out here in the front. (Laughter.) She really is here. It’s hard to see. (Laughter.)

Justice Breyer is here. And — where’s Justice Breyer?  There he is — right here.  (Applause.)  And our newest addition and former colleague of mine when we were teaching together, Elena Kagan is in the house. (Applause.)

I want to also acknowledge somebody who I rely on day in, day out, who is not only a great Vice President, but is also — (laughter) — one of my dearest friends; Joe Biden is in the house.  (Applause.)

And I have a pretty good idea where Justice Kagan will be on Christmas.
