390. It is a good list, and here's another point I'd like to add
we Americans need to look OUTSIDE of the US, our opinions, beliefs, wants, needs, etc. and understand that this is a prize awarded by, if you will, OUTsiders looking at the merits of a person. I think our president is even more of an inspiration outside of our borders than we imagine. We are like a family, sometimes, that keeps sniping back and forth about things, and are too distracted by our own sniping to see the true qualities of the family member we are sniping about.

Is it a premature award? Who knows. I think the committee was sending a strong message on looking FORWARD. President Obama personifies "hope" and "forward thinking", even as he is deciding how to unwind and clean up the mess he has been left.
