In my opinion, a joke, but its just me.
Ummm, no offence, but the dude has been in office for 9 months – thats not really enough time to deserve a nobel peace prize, is it??
But the catch in all of this….is the nominations had to be made by Feb 1st, 2009, Only 12, yep twelve days after O-man took office, now you cannot tell me that “extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples” can be obtained in 12 days – can you??
For an award that seemed to go to some of the most prestige writers, scientists and peace makers, it is sort of becoming a joke with winners like Jimmy Carter, Al Gore and now Barack Obama.
Poor Mother Theresa, she had to work her ass off for years before she received her award.
