This has turned out to be a very interesting story. Lots of unexpected takes, ranging from polite conservative congratulations to left wing fury: how dare they trivialize the Nobel Peace Prize by bestowing it on Obama. I understand better now why the committee chose to award the prize to Obama, but I still think it's premature. I'm not upset by it, or offended by it, it's just not clearly justifiable in my mind. The word I've used in discussions several times today is "odd." Hopefully, I'll get up a more thorough discussion tomorrow, but in the meantime...

Someone suggested that this prize isn't really for Obama, but rather, it's for the American Voter.

Which is logical. To a degree.
