Just because Rod Blagojevich did not get what he wanted does not mean he was not a leader or was not looking for big money, Assistant U.S. Attorney Reid Schar said.

"I think I heard the defense say that if he had actually been a leader, he would have decided upon a senator," Schar said. "He did - twice. He decided it would be Valerie Jarrett -- if he could get [appointed] Secretary of Health and Human Services. He did decide. He just didn't get what he wanted."
