What About the Corporate Sector?

I'd be surprised if Mitt Romney's campaign goes up in flames. But how important would that be? There was only one moment after the implosion of the Giuliani campaign that Romney got above 50% in the national polls. Most voters don't like him. What's the big deal?

It turns out that Mitt Romney is the last real"business candidate" left among the major contenders for either party's nomination. In relation to the corporate sector, McCain is a good government reformer and Huckabee is a populist who wants to stop the redistribution of wealth from the poor and middle to the top 1/2 percent. It could be argued that both of them would be less friendly to the corporate sector than either Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton.

Although the corporate sector is the most powerful element in American society, big business could find themselves largely excluded from access to presidential power after the 2008 election.
