What do you think about the reactions to President Obama being awarded a Nobel Peace Prize?

Susan Hennessey, Montpelier
“We are reflecting our own desires and even wants. The desire to see President Obama fail or succeed might shape one's opinion. If people find enough information about the origins of the Nobel Peace Prize and the reason behind why it is given, they will find that President Obama is not the first to be awarded for promises of what is  to come.”


Cathy Cadwell, Fayston
“I understand the reasons for people's varying reactions given that President Obama has only been president for 10 months. Perhaps he was given the prize as a vote of confidence for future actions more than what he has accomplished to date.”
John Lynch, Moretown
“I think the vast majority of surprised reactions are well-founded. I do think surprise was a justified reaction, but at the same time, I'm not sure who else should have received this award. Perhaps the Dalai Lama.”
