Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich finished his visit to the New York media outlets by appearing on ABC's The View -- while, back in the Illinois Senate, his impeachment trial got underway without him.
As expected, the panel of The View was as harsh with the disgraced gov as the senate is expected to be.
Co-host Joy Behar got things off to a light-hearted start by asking Blagojevich to do his "fantastic" impression of former President Richard Nixon, who resigned in disgrace in 1974. But it was what she asked him to say that made the point: she insisted he do Nixon's famous "I'm not a crook."

Blagojevich continued to say he did nothing wrong in looking to fill Barack Obama's senate seat for a fee, with Behar responding by ruffling his hair.
"I'm an innocent man," Blagojevich said. "For me to resign would be to admit I did something wrong, which I did not do."
