President Obama and the Nobel Peace Prize

I was, at first, outraged by the Nobel Committee’s awarding of the Peace Prize to Obama but upon reading the statement issues by the committee I partially changed my mind. I am still unconvinced about the new climate Obama has generated for intonational diplomacy and whether this should warrant the prize. What i found interesting and agreed with was the committee’s claim that they were using the prize not just as a means of recognition but as a tool to inspire further action.
For anyone who is interested:
Bono joins the minority of people who have voted in the poll so far supporting the awarding of the prize to President Obama.
