3. General Motors
4. Chevron

6. ConocoPhillips
7. General Electric
8. Citigroup
9. AIG
10. IBM

The next time anyone complains about Time Warner being too big and bloated, the correct response is "Exxon is bigger and bloated-er."
We are, however, disappointed to see the military industrial complex so underrepresented. Sure, you have Boeing and United Technologies and Lockheed Martin and Raytheon, but we were hoping Halliburton would be at the top of the list. We're really starting to lose faith in the military industrial complex...
