Democratic Party Music Is Cheerful
At the DSCC/DCCC victory party at the Hyatt on New Jersey Avenue Northwest, excited crowds packed the ballroom, hallways and hotel bar celebrating the returns.
In contrast to music at other parties, the disc jockey began playing Queens classic We Are the Champions at 9:27 p.m., around the time most news sites projected Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) would take Ohios electoral votes. Another tune played over the stereo? Rihannas Please Dont Stop the Music.
