"SEATTLE -- Crowds danced in the streets, wept, lifted their voices in prayer and brought traffic to a standstill.

Barack Obama's historic win sent his supporters pouring out into the streets of Seattle on Tuesday night, where they celebrated their candidate's win.

An estimated crowd of 3,500 spilled into the streets near the Pike Place Market and on Capitol Hill Tuesday night. Perfect strangers were hugging and giving high-fives. Fireworks were going off, and people were crowd surfing.

But police say the scene was very peaceful, and when the party began to wane, people grabbed brooms and starting sweeping up the mess, with officers thanking them as they drove through.

Seattle police spokeswoman Renee Witt says there were no incidents or arrests."

I totally missed out on this. I was going to wander down Broadway last night, but ended up not.
