Sure, Hillary Clinton will go after Wall Street - Wall Street money

In response to an FT article by Megan Murphy on 13th June 2015, entitled 'Hillary Clinton reboots her presidential campaign'

Here is some interesting information from, Centre for Responsive Politics:

Wall Street donors from Mrs Clinton's Top 20 during the 2008 election cycle:

3. JP Morgan

4. Goldman Sachs

5. Citigroup

6. Morgan Stanley

8. Lehman Brothers

11. Merrill Lynch

Contrast this with a selection from Mitt Romney's list from his presidential run in 2012:

1. Goldman Sachs

2. Bank of America

3. Morgan Stanley

4. JP Morgan

5. Wells Fargo

9. Citigroup

Here's three observations that wouldn't trouble a blind cave dweller:

a) Mrs Clinton will definitely be going after Wall Street...Wall Street money

b) Wall Street will be covering both sides of the bet

c) Anyone who pretends otherwise is either naive or selling something
