Grayson, Meek, Castor and Wasserman Schultz get a sweet ride home


Rep. Alan Grayson and three other Florida Democrats have hitched a ride home on Air Force One.

The four members were picked up by President Barack Obama, who a day after delivering his State of the Union address is headed to Tampa, Fla. to unveil a jobs bill.

Along with Grayson, the other three Democrats making the trip are Florida Reps. Kendrick Meek, Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Kathy Castor.

The free-speaking Grayson has emerged as a liberal firebrand and a maverick representative in his first year in Congress. That could make for a lively couple of hours before they're wheels down in Tampa.

Vice President Joe Biden will join Obama for the day, but as is typical when both the president and the vice president are traveling to the same location, they did not travel together.
