Show me the money! A list of the largest Obama Donors.

The list of top Obama donors is interesting to say the least. With donors who recieved bailout funds and a laundry list of liberal academic institutions one has to wonder what they expected in return for supporting Obama.  This list comes from Opensecrets.org:

Because of contribution limits, organizations that bundle together many individual contributions are often among the top donors to presidential candidates. These contributions can come from the organization's members or employees (and their families). The organization may support one candidate, or hedge its bets by supporting multiple candidates. Groups with national networks of donors - like EMILY's List and Club for Growth - make for particularly big bundlers.

Goldman Sachs is under investigation; G.E. recently made the news for managing to avoid paying any taxes; Citigroup and Chase received bailout funds. Interesting to say the least.
