Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak said Thursday that he will make his decision on whether he'll seek another term before the first of the year, the Star Tribune reported.

The pending decision leads to another question: If he leaves, will he take on a post in Washington, D.C. , as President Barack Obama begins his second term?

According to the Star Tribune, Rybak said Thursday that if would have gone, it would have been four years ago -- and he has yet to hear of any new opportunities.

Rybak, who spoke at the Democratic National Convention in September, has been an Obama supporter since before the president's first term.

R.T. wasn't the only Rybak celebrating Obama's re-election Tuesday night. His mother, Lorraine, jumped into crowd-surfing mode when the president was declared the winner of a second term.
