OSLO — In a stunning surprise, the Nobel Committee announced Friday (4 minutes ago) that it had awarded its annual peace prize to President Obama “for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples” less than nine months after he took office. “He has created a new international climate,” the committee said in its announcement. Mr. Jagland, a former Prime Minister of Norway, said that Mr. Obama had already contributed enough to world diplomacy and understanding to deserve the prize. As to whether the prize was given too early in Mr. Obama’s presidency, he said: “We are not awarding the prize for what may happen in the future but for what he has done in the previous year. We would hope this will enhance what he is trying to do.” People, we need to 'show the love' again instead of slipping down that negative slippery slope the media are trying to construct. You say, we can't change that slippery slope. I say (and he says) 'Yes We Can'.
