Toobin: “[Roberts] Is A Very Distinguished Lawyer. This Is The Kind Of Lawyer That People Have Been Talking About For 20 Years, About Being On The Supreme Court. He Is Someone Who Has A — Who Has The Experience That Makes Him A Plausible Candidate.” (CNN’s “Paula Zahn Live,” 7/19/05)
Toobin: “When It Comes To Credentials, There Can’t Be Any Argument That John Roberts Isn’t Qualified.” (CNN, “Paula Zahn Live,” 7/19/05)
