Imagine you turned on the TV and saw the Whitehouse surrounded like that? Not that that could ever happen but still one can day dream.

Tens Of Thousands Turn Out For Opposition Rally In Tbilisi
Tens of thousands of opposition supporters have rallied in Georgia's capital in a show of strength two days before parliamentary elections.
Addressing crowds in Tbilisi’s central Freedom Square on September 29, opposition leader Bidzina Ivanishvili said the current government had only hours left in power before it was voted out in the October 1 vote.
"This regime cannot be called a ruling force and the people have already delivered a verdict," he said. "We will just make it formal on October 1 and let it come into force."
Ivanishvili’s Georgian Dream coalition is up against President Mikheil Saakashvili’s United National Movement, which now holds nearly 80 percent of the seats in parliament.
Most observers see the race too close to call.
Ivanishvili told his supporters that the current government has "led the country to a dead-end."
He promised a return to law and order should his party win, saying "Saakashvili's system based on lawlessness and torture should be destroyed."
