President Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize. To be honest I feel bad for him on this one. It isn't like he paid $15 and filled out a form to get into the running or anything, someone nominated him. Also it rather blatantly points out that he hasn't done anything for world peace, at all by any possible realistic measure. Not saying he should or anything because his job title isn't "World Peace Faciulitator" but still. Putting him in the same group as people like Mother Teressa and the Dalia Lama is just sort of sad. Without getting into who and what our President is; it is fair to say that when measured against certain people by specific criteria we can all come up a distante last.
I sort of think this is symblematic of larger issues surrounding our President. Again without getting into what he is or isn't he is in fact a man. He can not walk on water or solve long lasting world problems with a meeting and a photo op. If measured by high enough criteria anybody could hypothetically be seen as a total failure. I think there is a distinct chance our President is going to be measured by criteria that nobody could possibly meet.
