Reporting with Natasha Korecki
In the same phone call where John Harris tells Blagojevich that Obama wanted Valerie Jarrett appointed to the seat (a desire relayed to Harris through Rahm Emanuel, Harris says), Blagojevich asks Harris what appointment he might get in the President-elect's cabinet.
"What other cabinet position would be not stupid?" Blagojevich asks Harris, throwing out the possibility of being appointed the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. Harris tells him it's unlikely.
"Ridiculous?" Blagojevich asks. "S---, that'd be cool."
On the call, the two men laugh. In court today, Blagojevich smiles with his head down.
