Blagojevich to judge: 'Great minds think alike'

Reporting with Natasha Korecki

Rod Blagojevich's meandering testimony earned yet another reprimand from U.S. District Judge James Zagel this afternoon, who berated Blagojevich for giving personal histories of his fundraisers and donors.

"I don't really think we need the biographies," Zagel told him. "I'm sympathetic to you because I do the same thing, but not in court."

"OK, Judge," Blagojevich says. "Can I say great minds think alike? Sorry."

That earned a smile from the stoic Zagel.
