Reporting with Lark Turner
We're back in this morning with John Harris on the stand, and a slew of recordings that delve deep into the Senate seat negotiations that were in full force in the fall of 2008.
On tape Rod Blagojevich is talking about what's next and how he can transition into the private sector while remaining politically viable.
Harris tells him he will be disappointed if he doesn't keep working for stuff he believes in.
Blagojevich has another take: "You have to understand it's very important for me to make a lot of money."
Blagojevich went on to talk about his family and how vulnerable he's making his family--wife and daughters--and how Amy will be 14 and then be off to college.
In court, Patti Blagojevich purses her lips; at end of conversation about paying for Amy's college he turns to Patti with similar look (pursed lips, disappointment).
In a recent interview, Patti and Rod said they drained Amy's college fund to pay bills, following the ex-governor's impeachment and Patti losing her job.
