Obama wins Nobel peace prize

Damn, our boy here is on a roll!  Barack Obama is awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for 2009.  There is no denying that many individuals OUS disliked the former President Bush and welcomed the change that came with Obama, but this award definitely comes unexpectedly.

From my understanding, may individuals who win the award are given recognition for the work that they have already completed.  I believe President Obama is one of the few who got this award for the policies he has just implemented.

Although I don't think Obama is anywhere near the same level as Mother Teresa.  The takeaway I see from this award is the world is showing their support and backing for our new President.  I hope this doesn't take away from the value the actual award represents.
