WASHINGTON — US President Barack Obama appointed longtime friends of his predecessor, George W. Bush, to top posts overseeing the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington on Monday.

The museum announced that Obama appointed Tom Bernstein, a New York City developer and human rights advocate, as museum chairman. Former Bush Chief of Staff Joshua Bolten was named vice chairman.

Bernstein was a longtime Bush friend who once co-owned the Texas Rangers with the former president. In 2007, he endorsed Obama.

Museum Director Sara Bloomfield said Bernstein and Bolten are "ideal leaders" for the museum.
