Too many of the top positions in the Federal Government have been set aside for political cronies. These people garner points through loyalty to the party or administration and are given positions for which they are not qualified. Their career counterparts who have served their time, know the system, and deserve promotions are stopped out by this practice and do the heavy lifting for these figure head leaders. Review the record and you will see that far too often these people are recycled again and again appearing in various positions. The Merit system principals will continue to be a joke as long as these SES jobs continue to be gifts for political hacks.
