Voter's Notebook

It is still the rule in this country for newly elected government to reward with offices - even technical offices - those who effectively supported its candidates in the campaign. The Republicans and Democrats are alike in this particular. The result is what is called the "spoils" system, which will continue until the body of American people cease to leave organizing for nominations and elections to the professionals.
