Money Managers Betting On Obama
By Eric Kleefeld - April 14, 2008, 8:39AM
Barack Obama has enjoyed a groundswell of donations from hedge-fund managers, just edging out Hillary Clinton and way ahead of John McCain -- a sign that the markets are, right or wrong, betting on an Obama win in November.
The numbers from up until Feb. 29: Obama has received $2,196,734 from money managers, Clinton $2,046,550, and McCain only $772,375.
