how Obama is not glad-handing big funders enough, in this case, those fine folks on Wall Street.
For starters (literally): "Top Obama donors began grumbling on the first day of the Administration. 'The swearing-in was the beginning of pissing off the donors,' a longtime Washington fund-raiser says. 'During the inaugural weekend, they didn’t have the capacity to handle all the people who had participated at the highest levels, because there were so many.' One middle-aged widow, from whom the fund-raiser had secured fifty thousand dollars, got four tickets to the swearing-in, but none of them were together. 'She was so offended!' the fund-raiser says."
Then: "Big donors were particularly offended by Obama’s reluctance to pose with them for photographs at the first White House Christmas and Hanukkah parties."
