How’s The Back Of That Cart Looking, Horse?

Wow – Barack Obama has been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize! First, let me say congratulations to the President for such a phenomenal achievement.

We won’t mention that he took office two weeks before the nomination deadline for this year’s Nobel. Or that he hasn’t actually created peace or ended any wars, just yet…

Simply put, he’s been awarded the prize based on his potential. Now, most folks are awarded the prize after a lifetime of work (and their specific accomplishments usually occur ten or twenty years before receiving the prize), with the notable exception of Al Gore.

Do I think Gore and Obama don’t deserve their wins? No. I’m fine with both. Hopefully, though, Obama will live up to the promise that the folks in Oslo obviously see in him.
