    I'll take your 100 biased former U.S Ambassadors and raise you 62 Nobel Prize Winners.

    Hmm, I think I'll take the intelligence of the Nobel Prize Winners. ;)

    Laughs both of those endorsements these days are worthless Robert, sorry but the Noble Prize ceased to have any meaning to me when they handed one out to Yasser Arafat and Al Gore. As for the Ambassador's thats like saying BIG NEWS Obama gets endorsement of the DNC. So both of these are sort of suspect IMO.

    Well hey, they allowed someone like Dubya to be President, doesn't mean the POTUS has lost any meaning to me. :badgrin:

    Seriously though, we can least admit these are intelligent people.

    I'm aware of that N4 , however when these names are mentioned as Nobel prize winners the "PEACE" part is often left out. The last time I checked they all receive the same prize.

    I would find more of a problem with them giving one to Henry Kissinger for Peace in 1973 then I would with Al Gore.

    I will continue to stand by original statement as to the "endorsement" by Nobel prize winners a.k.a the dynamite prize. I don't dispute that some of the holders of this prize were and are some of the greatest minds of our time, still they were great minds prior the the trophy Robert.
