"I want to take this opportunity to apologize to you for fighting this case in the media," Blagojevich told Judge Zagel.

"I also want to apologize for challenging the prosecutors. I was very keen on your comments yesterday on how I saw it as a 'boxing match. 'I saw it actually that way. I studied Alexander Hamilton, back in the 18th Century... It was inappropriate. It was childish and not productive."

Blagojevich apologized for all his comments he said were "immature...petty...ugly...self-centered...self-absorbed."

"If this case was about being self-absorbed, I would have walked in and plead guilty immediately," Blagojevich said.
