10. This is news???
What a he's got 4 nominations in his past...sounds like a losing record, not something to be touted. And in reality, anyone can be nominated, but in actuality the process is far more complicated than that and is done secretly, the Nobel committee will never confirm whose even being considered. Hell, technically any of us could have someone nominate us and we could issue a press release.

Ahh...I see the Pickler is involved here...wonder what her agenda is here... :eyes:
