Ex-gore Chief Comes Back for Biden

The chief of staff for Vice President Al Gore will assume the same role for Joe Biden.

Ron Klain accepted the post for the vice president-elect on Wednesday, Politico.com reported.

He becomes the second Jewish Clinton administration veteran to serve in a top executive position for President-elect Barack Obama. U.S. Rep. Rahm Emanuel (D-Ill.) will serve as White House chief of staff.

Klain, who helped coordinate Gore’s claims in the 2000 presidential recount, later returned to a law practice.
