Blagojevich Takes Control of His Legal Defense

Ousted Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich "says he has assumed a bigger role in his defense and is considering giving his own closing arguments as his retrial on federal corruption charges begins this week," the Chicago Tribune reports.

He said he is "constantly hounding" his defense team about legal strategies and described his role as a "quasi-law clerk."

Said Blagojevich: "I can say that my legal team pretty much reacts to my ideas like my law professors did. I'm getting C's."
