While discussing his policy disagreements with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Republican Sen. Tom Coburn told a town hall meeting that "she's a nice lady," bringing hisses and hoots from the crowd. Coburn flatly rejected the crowd's animosity towards the speaker. "Come on now. She is nice -- how many of you all have met her? She's a nice person," Coburn said. "Just because somebody disagrees with you doesn't mean they're not a good person."
