Presidents all want leaks stopped, UNLESS they purposefully initiate them....i.e Clinton leaking his choices for nominations and waiting to see how the public and media reacts before he officially nominates them......Obama “Plug that damn hole”.......... lol

What Presidents really want is control over information. Only when it benefits them do they want stuff to “leak out.”

Exactly right. Strategic "leaks" have been a very effective tool for a long time.
