The Scene on 18th Street
While the politicos of Washington held typically button-down affairs indoors, the regular citizens of the nation's capital (dare we call them Joe Sixpacks?) ran screaming and dancing into the streets in Adams Morgan and on U Street when Barack Obama was declared the winner. Here is the scene on 18th Street in the heart of the Adams Morgan bar district. Police tried in vain to get the crowds to clear the streets. Revelers chanted "U-S-A! U-S-A!" and danced, cried and cheered. A few even stripped. One young man ran up and down the street barefooted and twirling his shirt over his head.
