Former Ohio senator and George W. Bush’s Director of the OMB Rob Portman is being floated as a possible Romney choice for VP.

…it’s Portman who is seen as rising in the early betting — not that the only vote who counts, Romney, has weighed in — because, as one operative put it, he could “step into the [presidency] on Day One.” The Ohio senator is also a conservative and comes from a key state. Despite his connection to the George W. Bush presidency — which would turn off some tea party voters — he is also seen as someone who could handle budgets as a former Office of Management and Budget director.
