Let's see, there's Dancer and Prancer and Donder ... and Biden?



Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn is going to Washington D.C. again, but not to lobby for federal grants or huddle up with the feds on plans for next year's Republican National Convention.

Rather, Buckhorn and his wife, Dr. Cathy Lynch Buckhorn, are scheduled to attend a Christmas party at the White House Thursday evening. It won't be his first. He went to three or four during the Clinton administration.

"I'm looking forward to seeing if there's a difference and meeting the president and his wife," said Buckhorn, a Democrat. "Even for someone who's been around as long as I have it's always an awe-inspiring visit."

Buckhorn is paying for the trip himself. On Friday, it's back to Tampa and back to work.
