    Obama knows.  

    Obama is surprised at the tongue-bath the media and blogs like this, give him.

    Obama and Michelle are not innocent to the ways of the world.

    I was at Obama HQ the night Illinois Treasurer, Alexi Gianoulis (sp?) held forth.  His family is a banking family.  We had a lovely event.  Not at all like the rank & file democrats have, pass a bag of chips around.

    Obama feels Republican.  The bankers ARE backing him.

    •  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abner_J._Mikva (0+ / 0-)

      Why is this relevant?  He looks like a democrat, lawyer, judge, congressman, educator?

      Bankers?  what is the connection I'm lost.

      •  The 'bankers' decide who gets on the ballot... (0+ / 0-)

        "We the people" get to vote for someone already vetted through the 'bankers' or monied concerns.

        Abner Mikva is probably one of the most interesting people alive.  I've had the pleasure of meeting him, a few times, most recently at an event for an Israeli dignitary.

        He left the Federal bench in order to be Clinton's White House counsel during the Lewinsky trial.

        Mikva, wields quiet power.
