 1   ROBERT BLAGOJEVICH   (On phone) Yeah. Well, I mean he's got, you
 2                        know, 25, 20 people are committed, have at
 3                        least thirty people there, his thinking is,
 4                        you know I came to the community six or seven
 5                        years ago. It'd be good for him to kinda
 6                        talk about his relationship with everyone,
 7                        what he's done, in general as governor
 8                        anything else specifically for the community.
 9                        One thing he said, do not bring up, unless
10                        you're committed to doin', a trade mission to
11                        India. Ah, 'cause you don't wanna, you don't
12                        wanna overdo that and comin' up if you
13                        haven't even gone yet. Um, he also said keep
14                        in mind the friction between Niranjan and
15                        Raghu, not to, not to favor one over the
16                        other. If you're gonna do, if you're gonna
17                        say something about one, make sure you say
18                        something about the other. I mean he cleared
19                        the little land mines here and there. Now
20                        here's the big issue he came up with and I
21                        don't know if you want to listen to this or
22                        not. But it has do to with a particular
23                        person who is lobbying to be the senator, um,
24                        and wants to talk to you about his resume,
25                        Jackson. And Raghu Nayak, evidently
26                        supported it and he had communicated through
27                        Rajinder that if in fact, um, that would be
28                        the case, ah there would be some accelerated
29                        fundraising on your behalf between now and
30                        the end of the year, through his network.
31                        And I said look and uh, they haven't even,
32                        and I, I completely told him, you know, we
33                        don't even know who the president is gonna be
34                        yet.

35                        (Pause)



2                        (Pause)

3   ROBERT BLAGOJEVICH   Oh, good.    Good.
