Ex-Bush donor hosts Clinton fundraiser

John Mack, Morgan Stanleys chief executive, is to invite senior staff to a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton on Monday, in a pointed endorsement of the Democratic presidential hopeful from an important backer of President George W. Bush in 2004.

Mrs Clinton, a New York senator, is scheduled to appear at the fundraiser on the 41st floor of Morgan Stanleys headquarters in Times Square.

The minimum donation for the event is $1,000 (726, 492) per person but Mr Mack urged those attending to give $4,600, the maximum for the 2008 presidential campaign.

Mr Mack was a Ranger for Mr Bush in 2004, meaning he helped raise at least $200,000 for the presidents re-election bid.

When it comes to supporting political candidates, I have always looked beyond party labels to the person who I felt was best for the job and most able to lead the country forward. I personally believe that person is Hillary Clinton, Mr Mack wrote in the e-mail.

He also praised Mrs Clintons efforts to reform healthcare and said she has consistently demonstrated a truly global perspective, and also has a deep understanding of the financial services industry and issues important to Morgan Stanley.
