Obama wins the Nobel Peace PrizeThis was a surprise to most everyone. But President Obama was just awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. As Karl Ritter and Matt Moore explain in President Obama wins the Nobel Peace Prize Salon 10/09/09:
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. The plaudit appeared to be a slap at President George W. Bush from a committee that harshly criticized Obama's predecessor for resorting to largely unilateral military action in the wake of the Sept. 11 terror attacks.To which I say, congratultions President Obama! And we expect you to live up to it!
