We're all a twitter -- here

We're following local and student bloggers on their journeys.  We'll update this page with their comments throughout the day.

Taylor Lasley, Yale University (blog):
@ 11:14 a.m.: "General laughter from the audience when the announcer asked us to 'please be seated'.  This experience gives a new meaning to the term 'standing room only'."

Zeke Miller, Yale University (blog):
@ 8:22 a.m.:  "The gates appear to have opened but crowds have only gotten bigger.  People are booing at a group that cut the line.  There are no police here and it is chaos.  The lines have disolved into a massive group of people pushing and shoving each other."

Victoria Reitano, Quinnipiac University Junior:
"I cannot believe how lucky I am to be here in DC for these moments of history in the making."
