Sen. George Voinovich (R-Ohio) announced this morning that he won't seek re-election in 2010. The political pundits are already debating the possibility of a Democratic pickup in Ohio, while local GOP name brand Rob Portman might be the Republicans' best chance to retain the seat.

Voinovich's announcement means four veteran Republican senators have already decided not to get beaten in 2010, increasing the likelihood that President Barack Obama will be able to enact a progressive agenda over the next two years and beyond.

Now we need a real Republican, not a RINO as was Senator Voinovich. The Senator opposed President Bush on elimination of the death tax. The Senator opposed President Bush on privatizatin of Social Security. The Senator did not give positive support when President Bush wanted a committment to a manned landing on Mars by 2020 which would have reaped numerous technological advances. The Senator was lukewarm (not aggressive) in support of ANWR oil drilling. We need Rob Portman in 2010 - a real Republcian.
