Andrew Tobias links to this article in the Washington Post about George Soros, the billionaire hedge fund manager who has been anointed "the major financial player of the left." The reason? Contributions to liberal causes to the tune of $15.5 million. And he means business:
Asked whether he would trade his $7 billion fortune to unseat Bush, Soros opened his mouth. Then he closed it. The proposal hung in the air: Would he become poor to beat Bush?

He said, "If someone guaranteed it."
I should also note that Soros is the former boss of Victor Niederhoffer, mentioned before on this blog. In his memoirs, Niederhoffer refers to Soros as "the palindrome."
