"I'm not a huge fan of Ann Coulter. You can be more conservative than me and be perfectly respectable like Ron Paul and Marco Rubio. But Coulter -- she's just a show-person And I knew her back when she was a very twenty-something recent graduate of Cornell, and I will say this for her: she's not faking it. That's who she really is -- she was like that when she was 24. But you know, one of the things you have to believe in politics is that people that disagree with you are at least as good as you are, they have at least -- maybe not as large a piece of the truth as you do -- but they have a large piece of the truth. The world is complicated. Yeah, I mean, the idea is if you're writing books with names like "Traitor"...whatever they all..and "Libel", whatever they are called, you're basically assuming that people who disagree with you are morally inferior, illegitimate."
Aaaaand the Punchline:
"And that's, you know, I face enough of that from the Left."
A drive-by dismissal of "the Left" en masse as pretty much as grotesque and vicious as Ann Coulter, as the coda of his lesson about how "one of the things you have to believe in politics is that people that disagree with you are at least as good as you are".
