Rubenstein's Rain

Not any more.  Billionaire Rubenstein is a hot ticket in D.C.  His list of rainmakers evolved since the Baker-Bush days.  The 2010 Carlyle Group investor meeting had Madeleine Albright and Colin Powell.  Capital Hill and the White House have a back door for Rubenstein to enter.  Rubenstein, the penultimate power player in power-addicted town, seeds the next crop of faces to impress investors.  He had an Axelrod and employs a Frist.  How long before he has an Obama or Romney?
