Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) will play the part of President Obama in Mitt Romney's debate practice sessions. He said Tuesday morning at a Washington Post-Bloomberg breakfast in Tampa that he's more than up to the task:
"I feel a little awkward talking about it, because it's generally something that I just do quietly, but I did play Barack Obama in 2008 for John McCain. And all I can tell you is I was a much tougher Barack Obama than the one that actually showed up on stage."
