I know many folks believe that Obama should not have been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. President Obama is one of those people. But once awarded the prize, I don’t see how he could have rejected it. No matter what the brouhaha, I think the Nobel Academy’s choice demonstrates Europe’s (and the world’s) immense disgust with the Bush administration and their relief that the U.S. now has a chance to redeem itself and do the right thing — that is, pay attention to the rest of the world. I don’t think the Obama administration has done enough to promote peace in the world — there’s much more to do. But they’ve made a start.
