The latest round of White House staff appointments -- specifically in the counsel's office -- have a Massachusetts tinge to them.
Matthew Kennedy, a grandson of Robert F. Kennedy and great nephew of Senator Edward M. Kennedy, will be administrator to the counsel's office, the White House announced this morning. Most recently,he was Obama's constituency vote director in New Hampshire, and he managed his great uncle's 2006 re-election bid.
Norman L. Eisen, a Harvard Law School graduate, will be special counsel to the president for ethics and government reform.
Danielle Gray and Michael Gottlieb, both Harvard Law School grads and editors of the Law Review, will be associate counsels to the president. Blake Roberts, who has the same two credentials on his resume, will be a deputy associate counsel to the president.
And as disclosed by the law school last week, professor Daniel Meltzer will be principal deputy counsel to the president and deputy assistant to the president.
