"It would be difficult to find in a Supreme Court nominee a better qualified candidate with more impressive credentials than Judge John Roberts. I am hopeful that the U.S. Senate will execute its responsibility - without the undue influence of special interest groups - to ensure that it is confirming a man with the judicial temperament, intellectual acuity, and respect for the Constitution that will serve our country well in the years to come."
