Obama goes through the motions

The appeals, to be precise:
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that defendants President Barack Obama and White House Press Secretary Robert L. Gibbs hereby appeal to the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit from this Court's Judgment of April 20, 2010 as well as all other opinions, orders, and rulings that merge into that judgment, including, but not limited to, this Court's Opinion and Order dated April 15, 2010 and this Court's Opinion and Order dated March 1, 2010.
The latter is U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb's granting the FFRF standing to sue on the question of the constitutionality of the particular federal statute, but denying its standing to challenge the constitutionality of "prayer proclamations generally."

He might have better luck getting that reversed, although the opinion depends heavily on the Seventh Circuit's own precedent.
