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[1].

More from Jake Tapper[2] via Glenn Reynolds[3] (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.
