It's one of the wonders of the separation of powers.
President Obama has no more idea than anyone else what the Supreme Court will do with his health care plan.
president will have to learn about the ruling just like millions of
other Americans -- by watching cable news television or refreshing
websites after the court convenes at 10 a.m. Thursday.
In fact, there's a very good chance you can find out the Supreme Court decision before the president does.
Obama is apt to be busy and, given the fact it may be a complex ruling, aides may wait a bit before briefing him.
The likelihood of a leak in the meantime: extremely low.
"Anybody who covers the Supreme Court knows that it's pretty airtight," said White House press secretary Jay Carney.
The spokesman said, "We all will await the decision and learn of it at the same time that you do."
In other words, he said, "we turn on televisions and radios and computers and watch SCOTUSblog."
