If you're taking smite, that means you have problems last-hitting on time.

If this is the case, consider why. If you tend to play champs that have problems last hitting, maybe you could use more mana so you can spam your abilities more - so, get Clarity. It'll do more.

If it's because you always ALMOST kill the target, then you have poor timing. It's really hard to improve on that sometimes, so consider getting more damage. Offensive Mastery and +AD runes will go a long way.

Are you concerned with the +5 gold? Consider this: Exhaust, Flash and Ignite can sometimes net you ONE BONUS kill in a game. If that's all you get from it, it is exactly the same as using Smite every minute for 60 minutes. If you're hell bent on getting more money as support, get greed, three gold quints, and ignite - I bet you'll score a kill, a support, or at least lane superiority with it.

Smite also has no added utility versus champions, boss creeps. It doesn't help you push - early, you don't do enough damage for it to matter; late, you do so much damage it won't be noticed.

Another way to look at smite: Would you regularly (in 75% of cases or more) get Mandred's Razor on this character? If the answer is no, you definitely shouldn't be getting smite.

Already said that you shouldn't be taking it with a support champ at all, thats why I didn't put it in. If you go that far up the tree on a non-support just for the cdr, then you are doing it wrong.
If you go far enough into the tree to get the Clairvoyance buff, then it would be a waste not to get the CDR buff. A support champ CAN do this without gearing toward taking away minion kills from the carry they are babysitting.
