As he prepared to go for a jog Wednesday morning, an upbeat Blagojevich told reporters outside his home that he's "dying" to talk to Illinoisans. He says he could do so by the end of the day or "maybe no later" than Thursday.
Blagojevich says he thinks he's in "good hands."
The governor asked reporters not to follow him on his morning jog, lamenting that he hasn't been able to run in his neighborhood since his Dec. 9 arrest on federal corruption charges. He's accused of trying to sell President-elect Barack Obama's vacant Senate seat.
