LAist likes to think of Democratic National Committee member Ed Espinoza as LA's Superdelegate. We chatted with him last week.

While President-Elect Barack Obama's Inauguration is next week, Washington DC isn't waiting to start the fun. Parties kick off Thursday, five days before the swearing-in. If you're heading out from LA, LAist hopes you have your hotel reservations booked! Ed Espinoza is going to be there soaking it all up. And no, you can't stay at his house. It's full.

LAist: What do you have to say about January 20th?
Ed Espinoza: Washington is really excited right now. This Inauguration is going to be the biggest one we’ve ever seen. You’re going to see ridiculous sized crowds. It’s like the World Cup or Olympics is coming to DC. Most Inaugurals are one day. This is going to be a week’s worth of festivities and fighting crowds.
