Judge Bill Pryor talking about John Roberts:

Many Senate Democrats opposed Pryor’s nomination, and Pryor had been through a bruising hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee that June. The next morning, Pryor said, Roberts told him, “Bill, I’m here to tell you, you will some day be confirmed.”

Pryor laughed and added, “I wasn’t so sure he was right, but he ended up being right.” The Senate just two months ago made Pryor’s place on the court permanent on a 53-45 vote.
