Obama On Blagojevich Profanity: "I Won't Quote Back Some Of The Things That Were Said About Me" (VIDEO)

Though today's Obama press conference was supposed to be about health care, the press predictably asked a few questions about disgraced Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, and what contact --if any-- the president-elect has had with him. In the below clip, Obama reiterates that he has not been approached about any wrongdoing on the part of his transition team and, as a way of illustrating his distance from the governor's office, jokes that he can't even say what Blagojevich called him in recorded conversations ("motherfucker") as "this is a family program."
