Obama press conference on Daschle, Blago: “I have never spoken to the governor on this subject;” “appalled”

Just returned to the office and tuned into Obama’s press conference on Blago-quiddick. Fill me in if you caught the beginning (he intro’ed Tom Daschle as HHS Sec’y nominee).

The One says he’s confident no representative of his “would have any part of” deals for his soon-to-be vacant Senate seat.

Says he was “appalled” and “disappointed” by Blago.

Reporter asks: “What’s wrong with politics in Illinois?”

Obama says Illinois is like other states in having wheeler-dealers mixed in with good public servants.

No, there’s definitely something wrong with Illinois.

Reuters reporter changes the subject to health care.

Because, you know, Reuters is tired of the glee.


Major Garrett summing up the presser. Obama repeated call for Blago to step down. Pushed for auto bailout. Addressed Bush tax cuts — hasn’t decided whether to repeal them.


Ed Morrissey has photos of Obama and Blago from 11/12/ and 12/2 of this year: “Depends on how you define ‘contact.'”

It’s the Clinton-Gore years all over again.



“I have never spoken to the governor on this subject,” Obama said, adding that he has asked his staff to collect the facts about their contact with Blagojevich on the matter.

“This Senate seat does not belong to any politician to trade,” Obama said. “It belongs to the people of Illinois.”
