    Obama has some apologizing to do.


    And, for those who will argue that he has nothing to apologize for recieiving a prize, I wholeheartedly agree.

    As he and those who are doe-eyed groupies of him feel the need to apologize for perceptions of past arrogance, this would be right up that alley. Perception is everything, right?

    ::raises hand::

    i think?

    I too am confused by this. Could it be that all other nominees were... worse? I'm trying to find some reason here.

    All other nominees didn't have a PR machine that captivated and excited the world for 12 months.

    Unless he had a hand in the nomination or in lobbying the Nobel committee, I'm not sure I see anything for which he has to apologize. If neither of the above are the case, then he didn't do anything to deserve condemnation, just as he didn't do anything to deserve the award.

    If anyone should apologize, it's the Nobel committee that should apologize to previous winners.
