Default 'Clean' Deadlift vs Deadlift

For the Olympic lifter, should he/she do a deadlift that has the same positioning as the clean or the normal deadlift(Rippetoe)?

From what I understand:
Clean Deadlift = hip is lower. torso more upright. distance of shoulders in front of the bar is less, more vertical.

One thing I noticed is that the regular deadlift engages the hamstring more.
