The Obama Administration is following its usual partisan pattern in banning former political appointees from civil service jobs, as announced in this memo. In highly technical areas like information Technology, the practice has been for political appointees to take civil service jobs when a new President appoints someone else to their job. Obama would like to get rid of everyone who worked for Bush in the name of "openness." Note that the ban goes back five years, so Bush appointees are effectively banned, but Clinton appointees are not. That sounds fair, doesn't it?
