Of course the debate has already begun: Does President Obama really deserve the Nobel Peace Prize after only nine months in office? Sure he does, and more importantly, so do we, because we elected him and by doing so sent a clear message that we wanted the country to move in a different direction. The Nobel Committee recognized what the rest of the world has known for some time--that he, and by extension we the American people, embrace ideals that were not apparent in the foreign policy of the Bush administration. Not to mention the fact that the election of the nation's first African-American president is a measure of just how far we have come in dealing with the prejudices and social injustices of our past.
