Interesting ... Oil $$ and politics

http://oilmoney.priceofoil.org/federalRaceGraph.php

Not surprised that Republicans got the most ... but was surprised at how much Clinton got.

My wife works for Shell ... and I'm glad Shell was way down on the list of donators.

And what is your point and reasoning behind that? Considering the MAJOR role that the oil industry has on our economy and well being, I would think they would be contributors to the presidency, and why wouldn't they support the one they feel has their best interest at hands? I guess I'm confused.
Here, take a look at just how SMALL a part of the pie those numbers are. http://www.opensecrets.org/pres08/index.asp

it's white collar work, dealing with contracts, procurement and market analysis ... if that's something you are interested in, send me your resume and I'll pass it on to my wife.
