Through endless months of campaigning, Barak Obama has proven himself to be one cool customer.
One by one, his competitors have put their feet in their mouths trying to discover a chink in his armor. So far, he hasn't revealed it.
As a black candidate, he knows all too well that the slightest flash of anger would threaten white voters and drive them away from his message. No worry; except for a borderline snide remark toward Hilary Clinton during a debate, he's not shown the slightest bit of temper.
He's been remarkably level-headed and avoided the divisive language of "small towns. vs. big cities" and "anti-American vs. pro-American" that his opponents have exploited.
In short, he's run a campaign that proves he's a thoughtful, even-keeled politician willing to listen to both sides of an issue.
