Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO) is known in DC as an avid Twitter-holic. So it came as no surprise when we saw this revealing tweet from Senator McCaskill [1]:

Stuck in tram from Capitol to Hart. Broken. Not moving. Lieberman and Alexander in next car. And Voiniitch. Wonder how long we’ll be here?

As Red State points out [2], the tram that runs from the Capitol to the Hart Senate Office Building covers the distance roughly the length of a football field. So if stuck halfway, this would require the distinguished Senators to walk for at least 3 minutes. Red State found the perfect video [2] to demonstrate this emergency:
