"We" Had No Contact?

Maybe we listen differently since the Clinton years: I couldn't help but wonder about the significance of the president-elect's mid-sentence correction when he said, "I had no contact with the governor or his office, and so we were not, - uh I was not aware of what was happening."

Does the switch from "we were not" to "I was not" mean that someone in his office was in contact and aware of what was happening? We'll most likely find out if they were. But putting all the cards on the table now would go a long way towards this open and honest government myth that Obama ran on, you doofus.

Sorry, I didn't mean to call any of you a doofus, I just didn't want to end the sentence with a preposition.
