143. Norwegian view..
As a Norwegian doing a bachelors degree on North America i have to say i am incredibly surprised.

OK, he's promised to make the world nuclear free (that won't happen), and he dropped the dangerous missile shield in Eastern Europe, but mostly i think this is about the climate crisis. The Nobel prize is usually handed out on December 10th, this corresponds with the beginning of the climate conference in Copenhagen a short flight from here. They might actually be putting pressure on Obama to come to Copenhagen and DO something. Still, this is completely unexpected and incredible.

Personally i would rather have gone for Anna Politkovskaya posthumously.

When Gore got it, Charles Krauthammer called it "The Kentucky Derby of the World Left" on Fox. Wonder what he's going to say this time...
