Blagojevich said he was "dying" to show his innocence, but maintained he would reserve his comments for an appropriate forum.
"I'm not going to do what my accusers and political enemies have been doing, and that is talk about this case in 30-second sound bites on 'Meet the Press' or on the TV news," he said. "I have on my side the most powerful ally there is, and it is the truth."
Quoting Rudyard Kipling's poem, "If," Blagojevich called on the public to be patient and reserve judgment until the facts unfold in criminal proceedings.

"If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs and blaming it on you; if you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, but make allowance for their doubting, too; if you can wait and not be tired by waiting; or being lied about, don't deal in lies; or being hated, don't give way to hating," he said.

Do you trust this man simply because he says so ... I hope not.

Sounds about right based on the level of arrogance and contempt he has for the laws of this land.

When all the dust has settled, this will have proven to be VERY interesting. I just have to wonder how many people he's going to take down with him.

As Stephen Colbert said, he knew what was coming, so he put on a helmet.

I'm loving this! This soap opera will be extremely entertaining in the coming months. You just know Blago has the goods on some of those who threw him under the bus.

Love watching democrats eat their own.

Hopefully it won't come to crazy stuff like that but I think it best the man resign and get out of Illinois because things could get very ugly considering riot history. Fair trial? Maybe in Finland considering our current political climate.
