1. Lloyd C. Blankfein

To those who fret over the ties between government and the financial industry, the multiple visits paid by the Goldman Sachs CEO to the White House have long been a sign that the tentacles of the vampire squid have too tight a grasp on the executive branch. And while its reputation may have been somewhat dimmed with the rest of the banking industry, the chief of what is still fairly called the Street’s most venerable firm clearly has an ear in the Oval Office. Blankfein has been to the White House 14 times, according to the logs, visiting with Lawrence Summers and Valerie Jarrett, as well as the president. Blankfein most recently popped by in January 2011.
