Biden Campaign
Has The Most
Jewish Staff

As the 1988 presidential en-
durance race drags on with-
out any clear favorites in
either party, Senator Joe
Biden of Delaware has at
least emerged as the can-
didate with the most Jewish
staff
It was reported in June in
this column that several
staffers from the American
Israel Public Affairs Commit-
tee (AIPAC) had jumped to
the Biden campaign. Now, it
appears, Biden's national
campaign staff roster has an
even more pronounced Jewish

Biden: big Jewish staff.

cast to it. No less than five
former AIPAC staffers are
now on the Biden team in key
positions. In addition, the
candidate's all-important Na-
tional Finance Committee is
well stocked with AIPAC ac-
tivists and regional United
Jewish Appeal leaders.
"Other candidates pass
muster with Jewish voters,"
according to one Biden
worker and a former AIPACer
who has an understandable
bias when it comes to compar-
ing presidential hopefuls.
"They've generally voted the
right way on Israel — but on-
ly Joe Biden has a record of
leadership."
This Biden staffer also in-
sisted that his candidate, a
Catholic representing a state
with a negligible Jewish
population, has supported
Israel out of genuine belief,
not political considerations —
although the long list of

presidential
is
crowded with
with other can-
didates from states with
small Jewish populations.
Just about all of them make
the same claim.
Joel Boyarsky, a UJA mover
and shaker from New York, is
Biden's national finance
chairman, and Michael Adler,
a former top figure in AIPAC,
is a member of the finance
committee. A number of
members of UJA's Young
Leadership Cabinet have
likewise joined the Biden
team as highly placed
volunteers.

A Tough Job
In D.C. Lobbying
For The Lavi

As jobs go in this town,
Marvin Klemow has one of
the harder ones. And, with
confusion now reigning
supreme in Jerusalem over
the controversial Lavi fighter
project, his problem is enough
to give a Transcendental
Meditator a bad case of the
shakes.
Klemow represents the
Israel Aircraft Industries on
Capitol Hill, which means
that he is responsible for con-
vincing Congress and the ad-
ministration that the Lavi
project is worth the $18
million-per-plane price tag
and the more than $1.5
billion in U.S. aid that has
already gone to the controver-
sial project. Though the Ad-
ministration came out in op-
position to the project last
week on the grounds that it
was simply too expensive,
Klemow doesn't waver in his
belief that the Lavi is a cost-
effective response to Israel's
need for a modern, high-tech
fighter for the '90s.
From the beginning, he
says, Lavi supporters have
fought entrenched opposition
within the Pentagon. "I have
had many conversations with
people over there," Klemow
said, "and from their point of
view, many of their objections
are legitimate. From the
beginning, we had the full
support of the State Depart-
ment. To be objective, I think
that support has slipped a bit
because of the Pentagon's per-
sistent pressure on the State
Department that the Lavi is
using up too much of Israel's
overall defense budget."
He disputes the commonly
heard contention that the
high cost of the Lavi will pre-
vent Israel from developing or
acquiring other badly needed
weapons systems. "In the
long run, the cost effec-
tiveness of the Lavi will allow
greater funds for other proj-
ects because of the beneficial
effects on the whole economy.
