Rod Blagojevich called into WLS this morning and apologized for the controversial quote in the new Esquire interview in which he claimed, "I'm blacker than Barack Obama." The White House has not commented on the statement yet. After the jump is video from WGN of Blago holding a press conference of sorts in front of his house as he continues the back-pedal.

Thanks for the tip, David
