    Calls into question the authenticity of the award in my opinion.

    He was in office a total of 2 weeks prior his nomination. Sounds questionable to me.

    The Nobel committee chairman said
    "Only very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the world's attention and given its people hope for a better future"

    This too:

    The Nobel committee praised Obama's creation of "a new climate in international politics" and said he had returned multilateral diplomacy and institutions like the U.N. to the center of the world stage.

    "You have to remember that the world has been in a pretty dangerous phase," Jagland said. "And anybody who can contribute to getting the world out of this situation deserves a Nobel Peace Prize."

    As a scientist and member of a military family, I couldn't be prouder. Every little step gets us closer to a better world for our children. [​IMG]

    IMHO, Pres. Obama won the prestigeous award because he has advanced the philosophy of friendship and diplomacy rather than one of aggression and superiority.
