I would like to propose this word. It is useful: guileless, beguile, guilelessness and rarely used. You can beguile guileless people with it.

I love this definition from dictionary.com:

"insidious cunning in attaining a goal; crafty or artful deception; duplicity."

Add "Possessed of" in front of it and you have Politician. :twisted:

Of his new disciple Nathaniel, Jesus said, "Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!" John 1:47 KJV
