The top 5 are all democrats.
7 of the top 10 are democrats.
16 of the top 25 are democrats equalling 64%

Sen.Chris Dodd (D-CT.) chairman of the Senate banking committee
Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL.) Presidential Canidate
Sen. John Kerry (D-MA.) Presidential Canidate
Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY.) Presidential Canidate

Just look at the top four (below) and tell me if you don’t see a pattern. Notice that Sen. John McCain’s (R-AZ.) name does not even appear on this list. Not to say that his campaign never benefited from these mortgage giants, but we can clearly see who’s in the tank. Obama makes the top three and hasn’t even been a senator for a full term, let alone the 9 years worth of contributions in this list.

Elect Obama ,and keep electing democrats in the House and Senate, and we can look forward to more of the same shenanigans that got our markets into this mess.
