Roll Call reports that Joe Biden has asked brainy, all-around Washington insider Ron Klain to be his chief of staff–a move that would have Klain in the same White House role that he played for former Vice President Al Gore. Klain’s ties to Biden, however, go back in even further. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, Klain worked for Biden as chief counsel for the Senate Judiciary Committee. (Klain also did stints chief of staff to Tom Daschle in the Senate, and Janet Reno at the Justice Department.)
So will Kevin Spacey play Klain in the next movie, too? And more importantly in my household, will he still have time to coach our sixth-grade rec league basketball team?
