Blagojevich leaves home in predawn dark for Colorado prison

 Amid a crush of media and well-wishers, ousted Gov. Rod Blagojevich left his Ravenswood Manor home on the North Side early this morning for a prison cell in Colorado.

"Saying goodbye is the hardest thing I've ever had to do," Blagojevich told a crowd of reporters and cameras around 6 a.m. "I'll see you guys soon."

Then, with television helicopters in tow, the former governor took off for O'Hare International Airport for a flight to Colorado, where he will begin serving a 14-year sentence as federal inmate 40892-424.

He'll probably end up in Butner FCI, Butner, NC as all high profile cases end up.
