FOR A CHANGE. It appears that Rob Portman may run in ought-ten to replace the retiring George Voinovich as Senator from Ohio.
Ainnit funny that the Voin-o-bitch served just long enough in the Senate to qualify for the pension?
Dolly, you are an incurable cynic.
Yeah. Cute, too.
There is that.
But about Portman. He’s a bit to the right of the Bushes, in whose shadow he’s served most of his career. He’s reliably conservative on fiscal matters, ecumenical on social matters, and aware of the libertarian message, even if he doesn’t always vote that way.
He probably will win, if he runs. (Ohio is not happy under Democrat governance, and is due for a pendulum swing.) We could do a lot worse.
