Reporting with Lark Turner
Before jury is back in prosecutors complain about Rod Blagojevich's long-winded answers.
"In an effort, and only an effort to move things along," Prosecutor Reid Schar says Blagojeich should answer in a way that's "maybe more focused and responsive to the actual questions."
Judge James Zagel said if prosecution had objected during testimony, he would have overruled the objections (which is saying a lot for Zagel).
"It's fine," Zagel says. "This is the chance for him to tell his story."
Zagel did make clear that once they enter into substantive questions, about what's charged, Blagojevich will have to cut the narrative.
