On a sea of arms and voices with the Democrats

At the Brazilia Room at the Rio, where the Nevada State Democratic Party held its election results party, Adam Candee, a Harry Reid staffer, got on the dais to let the crowd know that the room was currently at capacity, and that anyone who left to use the bathroom might not get back in. He then pointed to his right to denote the proper door to exit through for anyone wanting to use the bathroom. As he pointed to the right, a sea of arms pointed straight ahead, and an eruption of noise enveloped his words--the jumbotron screen behind him revealed that, at approximately 8:04 p.m., Barack Obama officially became President of the United States. No one took a bathroom break for a while.
