John Roberts' Harvard classmates remember the U.S. Supreme Court nominee as a brilliant but modest individual with balanced views. "If he has a deep-seated, far-right ideology, he hid it from us for three years," said Mark Rosen, now a partner at Barrack, Rodos & Bacine. Rosen also recalls that Roberts had two goals when they were in their first year at Harvard: becoming a professor at the law school or serving on the high court. "It's up to him to say whether he got the consolation prize," Rosen said.
