Rod Blagojevich and John Harris discuss a call Harris got from John Wyma relaying a message from the Obama camp.

This is significant because it shows that Wyma, a Blagojevich friend and lobbyist, had contact with both the Obama camp and the then-governor at the same time he had been cooperating with federal officials.

Wyma passed along a message from Rahm Emanuel:

"Rahm asked him to deliver the message -- the president-elect would be very pleased if you appointed Valerie and he would be, uh, thankful and appreciative" for a Valerie Jarrett appointment.

"They're not willing to give me anything but appreciation -- f--- them," Blagojevich said.

In the background, a children's TV show is heard playing and a child is heard talking.

Nice. I met Blagojevich when he was shaking hands under my El stop, running for congress. Who knew he had such a foul mouth and greedy heart?
