Orin Kramer

Orin Kramer catapults from #35 to #10 after taking a leading and early fundraising role for Barack Obama’s presidential campaign. The former White House aide (Carter administration) is the guy who helped talk Jon Corzine into running for office; as Chairman of the New Jersey State Investment Council, he helps decide where billions of dollars of N.J. money is invested. If Obama wins the presidency, Kramer could be on the short list for Secretary of the Treasury or another high profile post.
