Sen. Ted Cruz, who has led the tea-party wing of Republicans in Congress to push for defunding of Obamacare, is an intelligent and principled debater, says his old Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz.
Appearing Tuesday on CNN's "Piers Morgan Live," Dershowitz called the freshman Texas Republican "one of the sharpest students I had, in terms of analytic skills. I've had 10,000 students over my 50 years at Harvard. . . . He has to qualify among the brightest of the students."
Although some in his own party have accused him of grandstanding, Cruz deeply believes in what he is doing, Dershowtiz said. Cruz made intelligent points and won debates constantly in his class – including winning debates with professors, Dershowitz said.
Former economic adviser to President Barack Obama, Austan Goolsbee, appearing on Fox News Channel's "Hannity" on Tuesday, said much the same thing about his former Harvard classmate.
"I think Democrats would make a big mistake to underestimate him," Goolsby said. "I think he's very smart."
"He deeply believes what he's doing," Dershowitz said. "I don't think of him so much as a tactical or strategic thinker. He's deeply principled."
