    What exactly has this man done so deserving? He has made some nice speeches to the arabs He has tried to hurt Israel and not even achieved anything with the peace process. With Iran he has been trying diplomacy just like Bush becayse he doesn't have the guts to use force and just like with the peace process he has achieved vert little on the Iranian front. He did watch the violence in Iran after the elections and said nothing America is at war in Afghanistan & Iraq. WHAT DID HE DO SO WORTHY? Immy the Penut Carter had to wait 33 years after the Israel/Egypt treaty before he got his prize in 2002. Bill Clinton went all out to try make peace and he did manage to broker a deal with Israel & Jordan, he tried to make oslo work. He left office 9 years ago & is still waiting but Obama who hasn't done anythng deserves one after 9 months. Obama would have also been nominated around Febuary 1 month in office. He got this prize becase he wasn't Bush and the fact he was black.

    from the article: Obama is worthy of Nobel, he has changed the world
