Eye On Boise

It’s hot, loud and happy at the Dems’ HQ

At the Democratic headquarters in Boise, at the Hilton Garden Inn, the mood is ebullient, and loud cheers broke out just now when NBC declared that Obama is the new president. The room is packed, there’s loud music on and off with a live singer, and there’s not a vacant parking spot in the parking lot outside. One happy young woman, clutching a beer, declared, “I don’t gotta worry about Obama – I worry about local.” Around her, people were hugging. The crowd erupted into cheers again when Walt Minnick, Democratic candidate for the 1st District congressional seat, entered the room and shook some hands, though there are no results yet in that race.
