President Obama Awardes 2009 Nobel Peace Prize

Congratulations to President Obama!! The Norwegian Nobel Committee said it honored him for his "extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples." He sure does... very nice. "Only very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the world's attention and given its people hope for a better future," the committee said. Wow... according to an administration official Obama was actually awaken to be told and he said he was humbled to be selected. Just FYI -- The last sitting U.S. president to win the peace prize was Woodrow Wilson in 1919. Before Wilson, Theodore Roosevelt in 1906. Jimmy Carter also won but had been out of office for more than two decades when he won in 2002.
