Reporting with Natasha Korecki


The Blagojevich jury is still deliberating quietly and has made no requests, Judge James Zagel told a full courtroom this morning.

Attorneys and reporters congregated as usual for a 10:30 a.m. status hearing on the 25th floor. Most mornings, we've been sent away without ever entering the courtroom. But this morning, the judge brought everyone inside to formally say that ... there is nothing to say.

"We are all exactly in the same position," Zagel said. "We are all waiting."

Today marks day 10 of the jury's deliberations.

I feel like the longer we wait, the more likely we'll hear "not guilty" on most of these counts.
