Portman to get award

Terrace Park's Rob Porman will be in Washington tomorrow to get an award from a fellow Ohioan.

What's interesting about this award is that Portman - a Republican - will be presented the award by former Ohio Sen. John Glenn - a Democrat.

The award is actually named for the former senator. It's the John Glenn School of Public Affairs’ 2008 Excellence in Public Service Award. The former senator will present Portman with the award at a private reception at the Cosmos Club in Washington, according to a release.

The award is "presented annually to an individual whose career exemplifies the highest standards of service in the public interest," according to the school.

Portman left the White House last year to return to Cincinnati, where he practices international trade law in the Cincinnati office of Squire, Sanders & Dempsey. He also teaches Public Budgeting at the Ohio State University.

Portman has been mentioned as a possible vice presidential candidate for Sen. John McCain, the presumed GOP presidential nominee. He also has been mentioned as a possible gubernatorial or senate candidate (if Sen. George Voinovich, R-Ohio, retires).

In other words, He's a Foreign lobbyist like all these other "public servants" that leave lame duck administrations to spend more time with their family??

Is the Sheik of Dubai a client???

Portman is just another rat who jumped off of the sinking USS George W. Titanic.

How much do you get paid to constantly write this kind of drivel? This is not blogging.

I keep hearing all these great thinks about Rob Portman, but all I can remember is that he was part of the Bush White House. Keeping that in mind I can honestly say I would NEVER consider him for any elected office ever again. Good luck in the private sector.
