Clinton is one a cadre of politicians and world leaders that Dimon, a registered Democrat, has befriended over the years. The list of political confidants, which includes former British Prime Minister Tony Blair and Chicago mayoral candidate and former investment banker Rahm Emanuel, has given Dimon high-level access to top policy makers over the years.
In fact, on the day Clinton took time to talk to Reuters, he was preparing to head to Washington to meet his wife, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, for the White House state dinner with Chinese President Hu Jintao. Also invited by President Barack Obama to the event were Dimon and his wife Judy.
Clinton said it's important for politicians not to ostracize bankers and to seek the counsel of people like Dimon. But he also said Wall Street financiers have an obligation not to repeat the excesses that led to the financial crisis.[/div] (2011)
Golly Bill, is a 35% raise amid cutbacks just a TAD excessive?
