Reporting with Natasha Korecki

On the next tape, Rod Blagojevich is on a conference call with his advisers, and they're telling him to appoint Valerie Jarrett for nothing.

"They all leave town and I'm stuck with gridlock ... impeachment ... and a f------ president who's all talk and no give?" Blagojevich is heard saying. "That's what you're recommending to me, Doug?"

Adviser Doug Sosnik: "Yes."

Blago seems to shrug off advice that getting just "good will" from the president may not be such a bad deal.
