How is the spoils system different from what presidents had done?

Andrew Jackson is considered as the starter of the spoils system. What he did was to replace nearly all the government employees he appointed with men of his choosing. He believed that no special talent was needed to government jobs, so why not put in people that had helped him get elected. What was different was the huge extent of his turnover and the party partisanship of his appointees. Past Presidents had replaced key positions but left in tact the majority of low level employees. Jackson cleaned house, so to speak, and used his men for the replacements.
