Heard on the Hill: What’s the Buzz?

Ellison tweeted before the signing that President Barack Obama was “taking longer than expected; so, Congress ppl talking among themselves. Chatter, laughs, plans, analysis all around.” He also tweeted that Rep. Peter Welch (D-Vt.) “has a fancy looking camera and he’s clicking away.” (HOH notes Vermont Democratic Sen. Patrick Leahy was also spotted with a camera.)

Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.) also frequently tweeted, posting before the ceremony: “Talking Minnesota politics, with [Sen.] Al Franken. Waiting for the President.”

Meanwhile, Meek joined Reps. Chellie Pingree (D-Maine) and Mike Quigley (D-Ill.) by posting several pictures to Twitter during the event. Our favorite Meek tweet came right after Vice President Joseph Biden dropped the f-bomb during the ceremony: “You think VP Joe Biden is excited?”
