Vice President-elect Joe Biden has tapped an attorney with an impressive resume to be his chief of staff at the White House. According to the Associated Press and several other news outlets, this week the Obama-Biden team will announce the selection of Ron Klain as Biden’s chief of staff.
Klain, a magna cum laude grad of Harvard Law, clerked for Supreme Court Justice Byron R. White for two years. He went on to become chief of staff and counselor to Attorney General Janet Reno, associate counsel to President Bill Clinton, and chief of staff to Vice President Al Gore.
Klain, a top advisor in the campaign, currently serves executive vice president and general counsel of Revolution LLC, a Washington, DC-based company launched by AOL co-founder Steve Case in 2005.
