Well, thank heavens. The White House has appointed a lawyer, political consultant and investment firm general counsel as our new Ebola Czar, the person in charge of managing and coordinating America's response to Ebola nationwide.
President Barack Obama will appoint Ron Klain his "Ebola czar," knowledgeable sources tell CNN...
The president on Thursday signaled his openness to the idea to have one individual coordinating the entire federal response to any threat of an outbreak in the United States.
A former chief of staff to Vice President Joe Biden and also to then-Vice President Al Gore, Klain is currently President of Case Holdings and General Counsel of Revolution, an investment group. He has clerked for the U.S. Supreme Court and headed up Gore's effort during the 2000 Florida recount and was portrayed in the HBO movie Recount by Kevin Spacey. He could not be reached for comment on Friday.
