Michelle Obama Taps Jackie Norris for Chief of Staff
By Al Kamen
Incoming first lady Michelle Obama has tapped Jackie Norris, President-elect Barack Obama's Iowa state director, to be her chief of staff. Norris, a high school government and history teacher and longtime Iowa Democrat, was Vice President Al Gore's Iowa political director in the 2000 presidential campaign and was finance director for future Iowa governor Tom Vilsack in 1998.
Norris is half of one of Iowa's premier political couples. Her husband is Iowa political honcho John Norris, who was Sen. John Kerry's state director during Kerry's 2004 presidential run and had been Vilsack's chief of staff. John Norris also ran unsuccessfully for Congress in 2002.
