Hopes that Democrat Joe Biden would be be a moderate President of the United States were dashed yet again this week with the former vice president's announcement of the vocally pro-abortion Ron Klain to serve as his White House Chief of Staff, should the presidential election be ultimately certified in his favor.
Klain, a longtime Biden adviser who was announced as the next chief of staff on Wednesday, said the president-elect has yet to speak with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., Y. He suggested that part of the reason is that the Republican leader has supported President Donald Trump's efforts to challenge the election results.

"The president, the administration, is not going to lead", Mr. Klain said.
"I look forward to helping him and the vice president-elect assemble a talented and diverse team to work in the White House, as we tackle their ambitious agenda for change, and seek to heal the divides in our country", said Mr Klain.
