Rod Blagojevich was just talking to a bunch of kids, like 20 of them, who were outside the courtroom.
They're checking stuff out but there's not enough room for them in the courtroom. Blagojevich tells them:
"I'm not the governor anymore. When I was governor I could've gotten you in."
He asked if any of them wanted to go into politics. When a couple kids raised their hands, he told them it's a "dangerous profession" and advised them to pick a different career.
He also said about the trial: "it's just as uncomfortable as the first one"
And as a sendoff:
"Be sure to tell your mom or dad I never raised their taxes."
