Great comment, i have no problem who makes me money either . However, when they WEAR their POLITICAL ideology on their cuff like Gen Clark who ran as a demo and Dodd (who is probably the next in line behind Reid/Pelosi as far as controversy is concerned) to speak on their behalf. Sorry, doesn't pass the "we're not deliberately trying to be political" test. But who cares, I don't own it. If RODM fires Clark and anyother political operatives they have on their board and stops shinging the spotlight on themselves via a DODD, then i think Wall Street will start to take RODM seriously and alot more start ups will gravitate TOWARD RODM as a finance source rather tehn chosing RODM as a last resort. There are many Gopers and Demo's on Wall Street and VERY FEW of them wear their political party hats when it comes to business. RODM does and blindly so.
you are nuts. many of the top bankers have been huge supporters of one or the other of the political parties. I am a conservative republican but if my company needed money i would be very happy to have some liberal banker get it for me. Who the hell cares? in addition, I know this will be news to you, but there are a lot of liberal entrpeneurs out there running a lot of start up companies.
