329. Agreed, but I feel there should be some results
I totally love Obama. And I really respect the Nobel Peace Prize. I just think that it's way too early to give him the prize.

There are people like Greg Mortenson in this world (of the bestselling book "Three Cups of Tea") who began with absolutely nothing and has built dozens of schools in Northern Pakistan and into Afghanistan and Central Asia, changing the community by leaps and bounds. Read more about him here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greg_Mortenson

However, I do agree that it prods him in the direction of peace as it is a huge honor and responsibility. And maybe that was a reason for awarding it to him. Still though, I would not have chosen him for the prize today.

Anyways, congrats to him! I'm sure he would have received it sooner or later.
