Here's a nice little story for the moment. Whether it carries until the election remains to be seen.

Why, if the repubs are considered the money makers for corporate America, would Wall Street types give to the Dems?

Wall Street favors Dems -- Donors focusing on budget, war

Quote:
Bloomberg News | July 23, 2007

NEW YORK—Wall Street donors are demonstrating their disenchantment with President Bush and his policies on Iraq and the economy by giving more to Democratic presidential hopefuls Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton than to Republican candidates.

Obama, a Democratic senator from Illinois, is leading among employees of the top 10 investment banks, raising at least $739,579 in the second quarter, Federal Election Commission filings show.

Clinton, a New York Democratic senator whose constituency includes Wall Street, followed with $424,545. By comparison, the top Republican recipients, John McCain and Rudy Giuliani, each received a little more than $330,000.

Overall, employees of the banks gave more than $1.4 million to Democrats and slightly more than $900,000 to Republicans. These Democratic donors are focusing on issues such as the budget and the growing negative perception of the U.S. overseas.

I realize that I am a pessimist where government is concerned and I tend to not trust any of them one iota but...

Its possible that the big boys know that ,(IF there is another election) ,the republicans don't have a chance so they are padding the pockets of their new leaders.

Another question that I would like to ask is this: In what way are the REAL money makers attempting to influence the elections behind the scenes. Don't forget...all that we are seeing is the pawns as the power pieces are positioning themselves for whatever their plan of attack will be.

Best chance for a good politician is one that the banks are avoiding.
Two things should be a death blow to any candidate, support from the bankers and support from APAIC.

Most of the candidates have been on their knees and unzipping the fly's of these two groups. Help us win and we will take care of you they chant in unison. Whoever gives the best blowjob wins the election.

Obama looks like he has some pretty soft lips.
