She’s so eager and excited! This is even better than the White House Correspondents’ Dinner! Gee, Suzanne, you mean there is a crush of people at a checkpoint? Unprecedented!

Hundreds of schoolkids! MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski gets in on the act.
Headed to the Dubliner. Tons of people out in streets. Washington is buzzing…—
