Andrew Jackson used the spoils system. While presidents before him chose the best people for their cabinet, Jackson chose the people who helped him win the election. This unofficial group of advisors were called the "Kitchen Cabinet".

The spoils system was the practice of rewarding political supporters with government jobs.
