What is a meritocracy?

I have heard that the Clintons believe in a form of social organization called a meritocracy. I suspect that belief, or lack thereof, in this system reflects very deep philosophical differences affecting our perception of the value of human beings. Can you please explain what a meritocracy is, and what its positive and negative aspects are.
