and Gandhi, maybe one of the leading peace advocats ever in the history of the world didn't get one even after being nominated 4 times lol.

Is Obama really on the same page as Mother Teresa or Nelson Mandela? Give me a break. This is ridiculous.
You should read what Christopher Hitchens has to say about both Mother Teresa and Ghandi.

Anyway, Al Gore won a peace prize for his environmental work, so it's all a little silly anyway. After 8 years of Bush, they're content with using the award as a sort of gentle nudge to get him to keep moving with whatever plan he has.
