OK, so I'm not comfortable with Howard Dean. Although he's is the campaign funds winner for the Dems (to beat Bush the high minded rhetoric about federal matching funds, with you the supporter's acquiescence, fall to the wayside in favor of Pragmatism) and probably can beat the current White House resident.
Here are some links to Open to see where some candidates funding comes from. Compare them to Mr Bush.
Al Giardano posted about a Dean /Halliburton connection that I guess is floating around Blogtopia (thanx skippy) but I hadn't seen until today. Looks like it is probably not big news...

The Big News

Mr Khodorkovsky, the richest man in Russia is in trouble tax evation, and fraud and has been associated with the criminal underworld of Russia. You know that Cheney and Halliburton also seem to have Russian mob connections. Halliburton is connected financially to Tyumen oil, as well as Khodorkovsky's Alpha group which acquired Tyumen under alleged rigged bidding. Then it gets more interesting:
These same executives, Fridman and Aven, who reportedly smuggled the heroin in connection with Russia's Solntsevo mob family were the same ones who applied for the EXIM loans that Halliburton's lobbying later safely secured. As a result Brown and Root's work in Alfa Tyumen oil fields could continue - and expand.

Much more interesting:
It then becomes harder for Cheney and Halliburton to assert mere coincidence in all of this as CPI reported that Tyumen's lead Washington attorney James C, Langdon, Jr. at the firm of Aikin Gump "helped coordinate a $2.2 million fund raiser for Bush this June. He then agreed to help recruit 100 lawyers and lobbyists in the capital to raise $25,000 each for W's campaign."

It gets better. Alpha Group and Caryle are connected:
Late Wednesday, before Bush Sr. had even left, traders in New York had already heard word that he was heading to Russia to help clear the way for the sale of a strategic stake in YukosSibneft to ChevronTexaco, which named one of its tankers after Condoleezza Rice, a former board member who is now his son's national security adviser.

But it didn't stop there. The buzz continued Thursday as news spread that Bush was also here to help finalize the creation of a $500 million private equity fund between Russian oil-to-telecoms giant Alfa and one of his present employers, the Carlyle Group, a defense industry insider that counts former U.S. Secretary of State James

Khodorkovsky is on Carlyle's Advisory Board.

Elsewhere we see:
Khodorkovsky met with Energy Secretary Spencer Abraham in July to discuss America's oil policy.

Dick Cheney is a member of the Trilateral Commision,with Lord Owen, Chairman, Yukos International UK, an attendee (you really need to check this list out).

Capitolism around the world, a global vision.
