About 50 gay-rights demonstrators waiting to greet Obama at the Washington convention center before his speech at the Human Rights Campaign dinner tonight.

Chants: “Obama, Obama, let mama marry mama.”

Signs: “A Chicago welcome for Obama: Keep your @#%! Promises!”, “How about the audacity of action Mr. President!”

There are also a a handful of anti-gay protesters outside. —Josh Gerstein (6:18 p.m.)
