  •  Honestly though.... (6+ / 0-)

    While that's a nice "Gotcha!" - Neda really wouldn't have been a bad choice.  Most people just look at symbols of peace when they talk about Nobel Peace Prize... and I doubt many people actually look at the specifics for awarding the prize.

    I'm glad that Obama got the award.. and it is very possible that the award will have far greater meaning 20-50 years from now. There is a lot of talk about how "Obama hasn't earned it"... nonsense. Utter nonsense. Big awards like the Peace Prize are for people who represent the ideals. A person doesn't have to actually bring peace on earth to win the award - they just have to be a symbol for striving towards that goal.

    Flowers Bloom for my Ex - though Honeybees are pretty cool too.
