W.H.: Ebola Czar Doing ‘Very Well,’ Impact ‘Already Being Felt’ Across Government
White House: Ebola czar Ron Klain has performed 'very well' (The Washington Examiner)
The White House on Tuesday insisted that Ebola czar Ron Klain has performed “very well,” even as confusion mounts about states adopting standards to contain the deadly disease that conflict with federal guidelines.
Klain, the former chief of staff to Vice Presidents Joe Biden and Al Gore, was heralded by the White House as a management guru capable of navigating the tricky government bureaucracy to limit the spread of Ebola.
Critics say Klain has not articulated a clear set of principles for how the government should ensure Americans aren’t exposed to Ebola, with some suggesting the Democratic insider has been "invisible" since starting the job seven days ago.
