Rob Portman Remembers Bush 41: He Showed ‘Good Guys Can Finish First’
PORTMAN: "Yeah. I wouldn’t be in this crazy business of politics and public service but for him. He did give me a chance early in his White House. I worked as a lawyer for him, then as Director of the Legislative Affairs Office. Not only did he give me a chance, but he showed me how it can be done. With dignity and modesty. Showed in his case, good guys can finish first. I think he was a great model for me and so many others."
