    can't vs couldn't

    1) I can't agree more.
    2) I couldn't agree more.


    Can someone please tell me the difference between the above two sentences? Does the first sentence suggest the lack of ability to agree? Which one should I say to mean I completely agree?

    The second one is idiomatic and more natural.
