As Amanda notes below, Barack is happy to use the failure of Lehman as a jumping off point for bashing Republicans.  He probably won't mention that, along with Hillary Clinton, he was the top recipient of money from Lehman.  (Yes, Lehman gave to John McCain, but as the linked piece -- from The Nation, no less -- notes, "you must skip over a number of Democrats . . . before you get to a Republican."). 

Oh, and Barack, along with fellow Democrats Chris Dodd and John Kerry --  was one of the top three recipients of donations from Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae.

Yep, that's change you can believe in.  Riiight.
