Because Herman Cain has black accent, and tends to use simple sentences to express himself, while Barack Hussein Obama has a ruling class accent, I initially got the impression that Obama was smarter. I should have known better.
Herman Cain will answer tricky questions extempore. No teleprompter for him. Who then is smarter? He has lots of facts at his fingertips. If someone expresses himself simply, it is apt to indicate he cannot express, nor understand, complex ideas, but if someone expresses complex ideas simply, it means he is smart, has charisma, and the common touch.
Herman Cain is smart, has charisma, and the common touch.
