Romney’s Debate Prep Stand-in Mastered Obama’s Voice With Audiobooks

Gotta share this quick link to a New York Magazine article by Brett Smiley about the senator from my home state and his use of audiobooks. Who knew! Here’s a quote:

Books on tape work for Ohio Senator Rob Portman…“I read his book. I did the audiotape because I wanted to hear his voice. I listened to the entire book. It was helpful to get his cadence.”

Thanks, Books on Tape for the link!
