Waiting for Obama at AIPAC 2011

The Washington Convention Center is swelling with the AIPAC delegates from all over the US—about 10,000, a record number. The streets of DC are being overrun by people of all ages and Jewish stripes who—at the heart of it all—love Israel. Due to tight security, they are arriving early, and there are about two hours until Obama is scheduled to speak. Press gets box office seats in the back (too bad no popcorn), and we get to observe and take notes with our laptops.

This means I have about two hours to kill before the highly anticipated event. So enjoy some random shots taken with my FlipCam. Feel like you’re here!
