Obama gets Peace Prize
This was a surprise to many, including the President himself. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize today. It was surprising because he has not had a lot of accomplishments. It left the White House looking for a way to try and spin this-especially since they did not create the news. They did the best they could by saying it was a call to serious action for America to engage in diplomacy to solve the world's problems. A lot of it had to do with the fact that his policies were different from President Bush. He also said that he will donate the money to a charity. There is always the option of keeping it with the promise of starting a foundation after his presidency is over.
