In his interview, he accused Cain of "insulting the intelligence of all blacks" for using the word "brainwash" to refer to voting automatically Liberal. With the utmost calm, Cain replied, "I did not insult the intelligence of all black Americans. I insulted the attitude of those who will not consider an alternate idea." And Cain went on to say that black people "did not consider my statements insulting because a lot of them are thinking for themselves." Then Cain did what a clever politician does. He turned around and focused not on himself defensively but on the president aggressively.

"Now, if they want to talk about insulting, they need to look at the president when he talks to the Congressional Black Caucus and insulted black people," said Cain. "In my opinion, by telling them to take off their slippers and put on their marching boots, when he has had nothing but failed policies." The other night in debate he did the same, defending his "9-9-9" policy program confidently. He does this with a cheerful demeanor that no one else in the race can muster. Cain is perfectly comfortable in debate and on the campaign trail.

His secret is that he is a superior gent. He has the best analytical mind of anyone in the race and the best disposition. That is a pretty good definition of character. O'Donnell is the opposite.
