How do you feel about this Spoils system?
It seems that the president just gets to appoint whoever he wants for jobs like secretary of defense and the head of the CIA, I know all presidents have done this, but I feel that it shouldn't be there, If it were up to me the president wouldn't be able to appoint anyone, because it pretty much still is the spoils system. How do you feel about politicians being able to appoint their "friends" into office?

The idea of having a cabinet is to allow the president to have a team of people he personally trusts and can work with. I can't see being expected to lead, but not being able to form your own team.

God forbid a President isn't surrounded by people who want his head on a platter for partners.
