AF2 landed in Indianapolis at 12:15 p.m.
During the flight, VPOTUS and Mrs. Pence came to the rear of the plane to
say hello to Chief Justice Roberts. Your pooler saw, but could not hear,
the exchange. Appeared friendly. Roberts smiled and said little. Was brief.
VPOTUS did not speak to your pooler.
Roberts sat alone the whole flight, away from the congressional delegation.
No mingling with lawmakers or staff.
Sen. Leahy came back to talk. Told your pooler of Lugar, “He was one of my
best friends in the Senate. He did so much.” And he said he and Nunn,
sitting up front, had been trading stories during the flight.
Also spotted on the plane: Marc Short, VPOTUS’s chief of staff.
