Historical Examples[edit]

Needed here. I would mentioned the Bush family and the Adams family in the US, the Trudeau family in Canada, and the Park family in South Korea, for example.Kentuckyball (talk) 13:08, 23 October 2015 (UTC)

Time for a spinoff?[edit]

Shouldn't the Spoils system be spunoff into an article by itself, perhaps titled patronage or spoils system? That section alone is already more than half the article. And in a sense, the spoils system is quite opposite of nepotism, as jobs went to probably 99.9% of people were not related to a candidate.nobsGary Johnson for Rehab! 20:55, 3 September 2016 (UTC)

Seems fine but the article will become a bigger stub; we could merge nepotism president with nepotism in order to fix that issue, though.--Owlman (talk) (mail) 23:49, 3 September 2016 (UTC)
