    OK, maybe not the best and maybe he is not a trader, but still:

    Cheney's Halliburton stock options rose 3,281 percent last year

    The value of Dick Cheney's 433,333 Halliburton stock options has risen from $241,498 in 2004 to $8 million in 2005, as Halliburton continues to rake in billions of dollars from no bid/no audit government contracts.

    The former CEO of the oil and gas services juggernaut, Cheney has pledged to give proceeds to charity.

    You go Dick!!!

    P.S.: However, the Congressional Research Service (CRS) concluded in Sept. 2003 that holding stock options while in elective office does constitute a “financial interest” regardless of whether the holder of the options will donate proceeds to charities. CRS also found that receiving deferred compensation is a financial interest.

    True, it just shows what a nice guy really he is. Although I don't get, what is the point of making money if he keeps giving it away....???
