Do you ever worry about the people who were hired or appointed by Clinton and are still running around D.C.? There are plenty of his holdovers in the Justice and State Dept. Where do you think all the classified leaks come from?
YOU apparently don't know the difference between appointed and HIRED. Clinton appointees were unemployed or had resignations on Bush's desk WHEN HE TOOK OFFICE.
At the Moment, the Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs was HIRED during the Bush 41 term. HE IS CIVIL SERVICE. Political appointees are not. GW BUSH HAS JUST EXPANDED THE NUMBER OF POLITICAL APPOINTEES BY A VERY LARGE NUMBER. IT IS A WORRY.

I work for the gov't so I do know the difference in the two. I do believe you will find that not all appointees from the Clinton admin resigned, as you say, because Pres Bush never pushed for it. He made a point of saying, early on in his first term, that he was not going to "clean house" of all past appointees and hires.
