The Obama Nobel Prize

I do not think Obama has done anything to warrant winning this award. Not yet anyway. Ok he is theoretically, an advocate of the ideals that the award celebrates. His vision, as expressed in his speeches is underpinned by a laudable and lofty ideology. But that is all there is to it at the moment. The man is a brilliant orator, writer and intellectual ideologue. I am not saying that he is not a man of substance but we have yet to see him transform his ideas into concrete actions. It is then and only then we know his real worth. If he is worthy of the award or not.
