Why I Think President Obama Won the Nobel Peace Prize

President Obama has been awarded a Nobel Peace Prize and all the pundits are up in arms. I mean (they say) he was only in office 18 days before the nominations were set and what has he done that makes him eligible for such an award. Well here's my take on the award.

During the campaign Senator Obama said many times that he would sit and talk with any leaders that would talk to him. Candidate Obama said that dialog was the key to turning enemies into friends. Candidate Obama was ridiculed, by him opponents in both the primaries and the race for president, for his naivete. I think the world was listening, and not only were they listening, but they believed.

Maybe it's enough to be visionary.
