Republican presidential candidate John McCain screwed himself out of some potential donors/voters today when he said that the “greedy behavior” of Wall Street investors is somewhat to blame for what might be an economic recession that we might be in right now. Know who’s still down with the Street Urchins? Barack Obama. DealBook notes that contributions to the Democratic presidential candidate’s campaign from money managers total $2,196,734 to McCain’s $772,325. Insiders say the donations surged in large part to Obama’s Super Tuesday wins, and a viral ad campaign launched by Highbridge Capital Management, pictured at left. Click to enlarge.
