Ron Klain, the former chief of staff to Vice President Al Gore, has been asked to fill the same job for Joe Biden.

And for those of you looking for jobs in the federal government, the 2008 edition of the Plum Book is now available.

Update: Politico says Klain has accepted the VP Chief of Staff job.

Update II: Al Gore not interested in any jobs in the new administration.

Update III: Competition for jobs in the new administration is pretty fierce. Check out this graph from a recent article in TIME Magazine.

The most labor-intensive phase is about to begin, as teams of Obama aides descend on more than 100 federal departments and agencies to begin poring over their operations. Meanwhile, the new Administration is looking for more than 300 Cabinet secretaries, deputies and assistant secretaries, plus upwards of 2,500 political appointees who do not require Senate confirmation. Not that there will be any lack of candidates: in the first five days after Obama’s team set up its Change.gov website, 144,000 applications poured in.
