Blagojevich Compares Himself To Mandela, King, Ghandi



Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, after a defiant and incoherent Friday press conference, is taking his case to television. Lynn Sweet reports on the first leg of this media marathon, from the "Today Show" Sunday:

Impeached Gov. Blagojevich, on the first leg of his media blitz timed to the start of his impeachment trial, in an NBC interview broadcast on The Today Show Sunday compared himself to human rights heros Nelson Mandela, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Mahatma Gahdhi.

As he was taken from his home by federal agents on Dec. 9, Blagojevich told NBC, "I thought about Mandela, Dr. King and Gandhi and tried to put some perspective to all this and that is what I am doing now."

On Monday, Blagojevich will appear on ABC's "Good Morning America" and with his wife on "The View."
