465. Premature.........
I am truly glad he was recognized for his leadership in changing the American approach to foreign affairs including a recognition that we haven't always been right. I am also pleased to see his efforts on nuclear arms, helping to bridge the divide with the Russians, being open to dialogue with Iran, North Korea and others.

But I think the award is premature. I would have much preferred to see him be awarded this after he had a list of accomplishments, some small and some large. Right now aside from changing the tone, negotiating the release of the journalists from North Korea, opening dialogue with Iran and kick-starting the UN on the issue of nuclear arms, the actual tangible results aren't there. They are aspirational.
