    I make a point and she comes back at me with the "you don't like Obama!" retort. Pretty similar to what a 12 year-old would say when they're incapable of actually arguing a point.

      ... ridiculous.  Many, many people who really and truly like, admire and believe in Obama were also surprised by this award and felt perhaps it was premature (self included). That does not mean I'm not glad he won it, or that I don't like Obama.  It does mean that I had to review the criteria of the awarding that prize, and read the Nobel Committee's reasoning.  He's not Bush, he has inspired hope around the world, and he is well-intentioned.  All good and right things, but Nobel worthy?

      I know what Obama's accomplishments are to date, and applaud them.  But I also know that issues like Guantanamo, torture, illegal wiretaps, armies-for-hire, Afghanistan etc. are less than at this point.

      My sincerest wish is that Obama earns this prize.
