Clinton Foundation Donors Revealed

The Clinton's, Bill and Hill, are honoring Barack Obama's commandment that they reveal, annually, all donors to Bill's Clinton Foundation. The latest list is out. Note this oddity:

It gave only cumulative ranges rather than precise donations, and didn't provide a fundraising total.
 In other words, Norway gave $10 million to $25 million. Oman gave $1 million to $5 million. (See the list of donors here)
Saudi businessman Hamza B. Al-Kholi, whose companies operate in the Middle East, Europe and United States...He gave at least $100,000.

Celebrity businessman Donald Trump, who gave $50,001 to $100,000 in all.
What's the difference between a few millions, huh? I think I'll report my charitable giving to the IRS as somewhere between $100,000 and $500,000 and see what happens.
