My point is they are the largest and best at what they do. You trying to connect the two in some conspiracy is nothing more than that. Your logic would leave us with a VP or President that has never had any personal ties with companies like Halliburton. Not a very realistic option, IMO.
I mean ppl like the Clinton's use to always rage against companies like Wal-Mart. It didn't stop them from sitting on their board after they left office.
