It doesn't say where the right edge of the content area has to be, so I
can't see why you can't alternatively answer the question with:

blockquote {
    margin:0 0 0 50%;
    padding:0;
    position:relative;
    top:0;
    right:1em;
}

This would at least keep the space in the layout open for the content that
follows
