Hello,

In the 2002 Election cycle WorldCom has not cracked the top 20 to date:

They were #16 in the 2000 election cycle:

They also did not crack the top 20 in the 1998 election cycle:

I do find it interesting that Global Crossing was #1 in the 2000
election cycle, and is #2 to date in the 2002 election cycle.  Not
surprising, but interesting.


Hope this helps, and hope that was not just a rhetorical question ;}.
