Judge James Zagel told the defense today they couldn't subpoena President Obama to testify at Rod Blagojevich's trial.
After court, reporters asked Blagojevich lawyer Shelly Sorosky if that means they'll give up their request.
It depends, he said.
If Tony Rezko takes the stand, then Blagojevich's defense
team might want to call the president as a witness.
Would it be good for America to have the sitting president, sitting in the hot seat in the trial of our impeached, ousted former governor?
"It would not hurt him at all," Sorosky said. "It would help his image."
