Default Interesting take on the 2016 potential candidates

Relative to big business.....

"The early voting is in, and Wall Street loves what it sees and hears from its anointed 2016 front-runners — Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Jeb Bush (with Chris Christie as a fallback).
The big-bank honchos feel they’re sitting pretty because, as one private-equity exec put it, “We’re in a no-lose situation” if the above are the real field. In fact, to the extent that Wall Street loves these three, they’re in trouble with the rest of the country.
The bankers are right on one thing: For all their philosophical differences, both parties’ front-runners are tied tight to the Wall Street establishment.
But if history’s any guide, that will be a bright red warning sign for voters in both parties who believe much of the economy needs fundamental change — and fast.
For all Hillary’s lefty posturing of late (“Don’t let anybody tell you it’s corporations and businesses that create jobs”), she counts Goldman Sachs chief Lloyd Blankfein and Black*rock head Larry Fink among her top backers.
Jeb is known for education and other reforms as Florida’s governor, but he’s spent much of his time since working with the money men — first as a Lehman Bros. special adviser, then jumping ship to Barclays Capital until he began exploring a presidential run.
