Barack Obama wins Nobel Peace Prize

POLITICS - Wow. Barack Obama hasn't even been elected a full year and he's already won a Nobel Peace Prize.

Too soon?

Even Obama thinks so. He is the first to admit the Nobel Peace Prize comes as a shock since he's been president for less than a year. The reason is he is receiving the prize is "for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples."

That's it? For diplomacy? I guess Oslo has been so upset about the lack of diplomacy under the Bush Administration that suddenly having a diplomat in power again comes as a bit of a shock.

While we do concede Obama deserves the Nobel Peace Prize for finally getting free health care for Americans, he still has to clean up George W. Bush's mess in Iraq and Afghanistan, fix the United States economy (which Bush left in shambles) and combat Climate Change.

No doubt by the time he is done Obama will be deserving of 3 or 4 Nobel Peace Prizes.

Perhaps Oslo is just getting a head start?
