7670. ROTATION IN OFFICE, Abandonment of.—

I dislike, and greatly dislike [in the new Federal Constitution] the abandonment
in every instance of the principle [438] of
rotation in office, and most particularly in the
case of the President.—
To James Madison. Washington ed. ii, 330. Ford ed., iv, 477.
(P. Dec. 1787)
See President.
