Hope 2010

How many have already built up treasures to run in 2010 and beyond?
The money primaries are already in effect. Certainly by fundraising requests.

It would be nice to find candidates to support. I like incumbents to eventually move on and live under their policies in the private sector. For me, if you were elected 3 terms ago before 1998, that's long enough. [Some I really like, but I like renewal more]

In Pictures: Wall Street's Favorite Senators


1. Sen. Chris Dodd, D-Conn.

Share of donations from finance: 35.7%

Total finance donations: $9,161,489

The chairman of the Senate Banking and Housing Committee receives a larger share of his political contributions from the finance, insurance and real estate industry than any other politician. Since 2003, Dodd has raised $316,494 from employees of Citigroup and $223,478 from employees of AIG alone.




2. Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala.

Share of donations from finance: 33.4%

Total finance donations: $2,542,878

Bankers, it seems, are fairly non-partisan--if you sit on the banking committee, they want you to have their money. The politician who collects the second-largest share of money from finance, insurance and real estate is the banking committee's ranking Republican. His single largest source of money was $91,200 from employees of Citigroup.

 

3. Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y.

Share of donations from finance: 32.8%

Total finance donations: $3,255,362

The donors to New York's senior senator Chuck Schumer are like a who's who of Wall Street. Schumer has collected contributions of over $50,000 from employees of Citigroup, UBS, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Lehman Brothers, JPMorgan and Merrill Lynch.

Now, I know why Chris and Chucky are always  smiling.  :lol:  Chris Dodd is in the most trouble  due to his AIG involvment. Of course this  is  only Senators, I think certain current President may also  be on this list.  :mrgreen:

I learn from Wiki-pedia that bears dont truly hibernate. In any case, it is near holiday time to take a break, have sweet baseball dreams of spring, and soup up.
