Pierce County Democrats celebrate

At this very moment, I'm surrounded by fellow Pierce County Democrats who are listening to the nation's first black U.S. President-elect address his nation of people that he'll be leading for the next four years, and hopefully beyond that.

At the end of each of his statements, they're screaming so loud that it's rattling my ears, but in such a very, very good way.

It's packed here at the Pierce County Democrats Party at the IBEW, and I could barely cut through the crowd to find this Wifi connection.

But I could care less about the fact that I'm sweaty and in close quarters because this really is one of the most exciting moments of all of U.S. history.

All kinds of big deals are in the house tonight. So far I've spotted Norm Dicks, Adam Smith, and local greats including John and Connie Ladenburg, Bill Baarsma, Jake Fey, Mark Lindquist (how can you miss that tall man), Tim Reid (another one who's easy to spot), Ryan Mellow and all kinds of concerned citizens like me who believed that it is indeed time for a change.

Here's a pic from this incredible gathering. Hopefully you'll be able to see the excitement and hope in each of these people's eyes, a very same excitement that is spreading throughout or whole nation, and the world.
