Doug Scofield said despite leaving Rod Blagojevich because he had a different professional philosophy ... he came back.

In 2005, Scofield again took a role in communications with Blagojevich's campaign. Scofield said he had many discussions with Blagojevich regarding campaign fundraising. But prosecutors seem to gloss over this time period.

Fast forward to Spring of 2008, Scofield talked to Blagojevich about the possibility that Obama would win the presidency.

Blagojevich wasn't happy.

"I think he was frustrated by it. He was a fellow Illinois politician and seemed to be on the verge of national success. It was clear to me there was some jealousy ...as to what Sen. Obama was doing."
