John Gizzi: Biden Turns to Washington Insider as Chief of Staff

John Gizzi: Biden Turns to Washington Insider as Chief of Staff”

As Chief of Staff, Klain would be in a position to ensure that Biden prioritizes such items, as well as help a potential Biden administration translate campaign promises to policy action. "I expect him to serve in the spirit of his most effective predecessors, such as Ronald Reagan's James Baker and Barack Obama's Rahm Emanuel, presiding over a disciplined White House and an orderly administration".

When asked if the Republican senators called Joe Biden or if the president-elect called them, Klain said it's been a mix of both.

Klain is versed in handling pandemics and received praise for the response he led to the Ebola outbreak in 2014, despite his lack of medical training.

Klain was mentioned as a possible replacement to Barack Obama's Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, but instead left the White House in January 2011 for a job in the private sector.

Klain added that the Biden team has not been given information necessary to form a plan to combat the coronavirus, telling NBC that "we can't have any of those kinds of contacts until we get to that stage of ascertainment", and urging the Trump administration to ensure a "seamless transition".

Medical workers are disinfecting the dead body of an Ebola patient. Klain has a long history of involvement in Democratic presidential campaigns.

Klain was a law clerk for Supreme Court Justice Byron White during the 1987 and 1988 terms.

"He has not spoken, though, to Senator McConnell", the Biden aide said.

At the time, the Florida election recount occurred after Election Day between candidates George W. Bush and Al Gore.

But Klain is also the former Biden staffer who admitted at the National Press Club previous year that it was "just luck" that the H1N1 "swine flu" outbreak that occurred during the first Obama-Biden administration wasn't a "mass casualty event". 'Right now, right now, there are officials inside the Department of Health and Human Services who are busy planning a vaccination campaign for the months of February and March, when Joe Biden will be president'. The vote was ultimately settled in Bush's favour by a margin of 537 votes.
