Many Republicans hope presumptive presidential nominee Mitt Romney opts for an uncontroversial choice as his running mate. That could well mean Ohio Sen. Rob Portman, Politico reports.
Meanwhile, the history of Romney’s hires at Bain Capital, the private equity firm he co-founded, indicates he may choose a candidate in his own image. That would mean someone “smart, ambitious, clean-cut, and a little awkward,” according to The Hill. That also could signal Portman, or perhaps Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels.
Much of the vice presidential speculation has focused on exciting choices, such as New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, and Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, chairman of the House Budget Committee. But Portman, budget director in George W. Bush’s White House, cuts a much lower profile. While Rubio will release what may be a blockbuster autobiography this summer, Portman’s last book, published in 2004, provided a history of Ohio’s Shaker society. And while Christie and Ryan have advocated for bold changes in government policy, Portman has offered bipartisan bills on energy efficiency and cutting government bureaucracy.
