All the speeches, parties, and strip-club visits expected to unfold at the Republic National Convention next week could fail to materialize if Hurricane Issac has its way. Tampa's mayor told CNN on Wednesday that he is willing to cancel the convention if the safety of his people is in question.
"Absolutely we're prepared to call it off," Mayor Bob Buckhorn said. "I mean, human safety and human life trumps politics. I think the RNC recognizes that."
The city has an emergency plan if Issac heads for Tampa. Currently the storm is sweeping through the Caribbean.
