In principle I would say no. I see the difference between the two as the following. •Clever people are witty and can quickly come up with ways to justify their point of view. •Smart people know facts and can discuss various topics of knowledge with some degree of understanding. Yes, both are intelligent. Yes, both have points of view but that are not in dispute. Is being clever equal to being smart? I agree that both can be considered intelligent. IMHO one has answers based on wit. The other has answers based on knowledge. What do you think?
