On day two of the trial, Rod and Patti walked into the courthouse together again.
This morning it was Blagojevich who spoke to reporters. The former governor praised U.S. District Judge James Zagel for running a tight ship.
"If we get a fair trial, then I know we will be vindicated," Blagojevich told reporters.
The two held hands until they exited the elevator.
The media frenzy has already subsided, with far fewer cameras and reporters here today compared to yesterday.
