Obama Talked To Governor Blagojevich About Senate Seat

Seems that President-elect Barack Obama did actually talk with the Governor Rod Blagojevich. From Fox News:

Obama said today:

“I had no contact with the governor or his office, and so I was not aware of what was happening. And as I said it is a sad day for Illinois. Beyond that I don’t think it’s appropriate to comment.”

On Nov. 23 David Axelrod, said on Fox Chicago:

“I know he’s talked to the governor and there are a whole range of names many of which have surfaced, and I think he has a fondness for a lot of them.”

Tonight the campaign is saying this was not correct…

Here’s the link to the video of what Axelrod said.

More from Jake Tapper via Glenn Reynolds (except that you can’t quote from their site, grrrr….). Anyway, go to the link, there’s lots more about the Obama-Blagojevich connection.

I suspect that the President-elect isn’t being exactly forthcoming.
