Obama and the Nobel Peace Prize – EH 101 blog post #3

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.

    I think it was wrong to give it to Obama on account of the fact that we have two on going wars. I also don’t blame Obama in any way for receiving it and I think it will motivate the administration to continue to push for peace in Iraq and Afghanistan.
