    as my generation was growing up.  That really made the Bush years particularly hard to bear for people like me, who cut our teeth in the Clinton years.  Fortunately, with it looking like two consecutive Democratic administrations will be elected for the first time since 1964, it may be turning around again.

        By converting many of their political appointees to Civil Servants, permanent employees all through the Executive agencies. This was a rear guard action to prevent them from being prosecuted (it worked) and to continue a lot of the bad policy they pushed through (that also worked).
        Combined with the Congressional roadblocks to fill vacancies in the Executive and Judicial branches, fixing the damage done will take a couple decades.
