Half of Obama's Cabinet coming over for the Super Bowl

By Ed O'Keefe

Nine Cabinet secretaries and several lawmakers will join President and Mrs. Obama to watch Sunday's Super Bowl, the White House said Friday.

Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan, Education Secretary Arne Duncan, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, United Nations Ambassador Susan E. Rice, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric K. Shinseki and Agriculture Secretary >Tom Vilsack will join the first couple for the big game. (No word if they're bringing their significant others or who's bringing the chips and dip.)

Reps. Xavier Becerra (D-Calif.), Rick Boucher (D-Va.), Joseph Cao (R-La.), Andre Carson (D-Ind.), Brad Ellsworth (D-Ind.), Baron Hill (D-Ind.), Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) and Sen. Christopher Dodd (D-Conn.) are also slated to join the party. Cao, Carson, Ellsworth and Hill hail from Super Bowl states Louisiana and Indiana, home to the New Orleans Saints and Indianapolis Colts.

Veterans injured in Iraq or Afghanistan and their families will also attend Sunday's party.
