    cut out of the same cloth

    Gingrich is cut out of the same cloth as rest of the republican field.

    What does this phrase exactly mean?

    It means that now matter how liberal (or libertarian) Gingrich seems, he is still a Republican at heart.

    We usually say "cut from the same cloth".

    And if he's cut from the same cloth, he's made of the same stuff. Essentially, he's no different.
