There seems to be some kind of meme going around that the Democrats are for helping the people who can’t pay their mortgage and the Republicans are for bailing out the lenders. These numbers from opensecrets.org might give a clue to who is in the bag for the bankers.
Hillary Clinton (D) $1,367,684
Barack Obama (D) $1,366,708
John McCain (R) $860,215
NOTE: All the numbers on this page are for the 2008 election cycle and based on Federal Election Commission data released on Thursday, March 20, 2008.
