Obama should not have won the Nobel Peace Prize. I generally like Obama, but he has not done anything to truly deserve the honor. We have scaled down in Iraq but we are still in Afghanistan and the expanding drone policy is far from the peace ideal that the medal strives for.
No, Obama was not the most deserving candidate for the Nobel Peace Prize. The only thing that Obama has done is win election. There is no evidence that Obama's election to office has improved peace throughout the world. While his election is historic, he has not accomplished anything that warrants receiving such an historic and prestigious award.
