We all know about Barack Obama’s legendary cool—what Time’s Joe Klein calls “the steadiness of his temperament and the judicious quality of his decision-making." But what about his gut instincts? Well, Klein says, Obama's "strongest—and most telling—moments have been those when he followed his natural no-drama instincts." Examples include his race speech in Philadelphia and his amiable debate with General Petraeus over the course of the war in Iraq. "His has been a remarkable campaign," Klein writes, "as smoothly run as any I've seen in nine presidential cycles."
