How to keep cronies where they can do little harm--until they blab

Keeping the Michael Browns at bay:

At least Bill Clinton knew not to stash his sweeties in jobs concerned with keeping the nation safe. Gennifer Flowers said that Mr. Clinton got her a $17,500 job in Arkansas in the state unemployment agency, though she was ranked ninth out of 11 applicants tested. And Monica Lewinsky's thong expertise led her to a job as an assistant to the Pentagon press officer.

Maureen Dowd makes her pithy and shrewd observations on how competent leadership handles its political cronies and liabilities in today's New York Times.
