Of course, this administration continues to baffle me in how they strategize. To handle a healthcare issue, you bring-in a lawyer?????? Really???????
Obama appoints lawyer to handle Ebola response
President Obama on Friday tapped longtime Democratic operative Ron Klain to coordinate the federal government’s response to the threat of widespread infection from the Ebola virus. The move came as the president and his administration faced mounting criticism about its handling of the disease.
The appointment of Klain, an experienced Washington lawyer who served as chief of staff to both Vice President Biden and former vice president Al Gore, signaled the administration’s recognition that an Ebola outbreak in the United States could overwhelm its management capacity.
In Klain, 53, Obama has enlisted a legal expert and Democratic strategist with a reputation for handling complex projects such as the administration’s economic stimulus package during Obama’s first term and the Democratic effort to challenge the 2000 presidential election results.
