The headline from NYTimes is the understatement of the year:
Accepting Peace Prize Will Be a Test for Obama
Yup. A big test in saying, “Hello, I’m a war time president who — via remote control — sometimes inadvertantly kills civilians in Afghanistan and Pakistan and just ordered 30,000 more soldiers to kill (bad) people in Afghanistan and by my own admission has not done enough to warrant a Nobel Peace Prize and will now deliver a Nobel Lecture on world peace.”
Best of luck, Mr. President.
UPDATE! Watch the Nobel Lecture live and see Obama at his most Clintonian!
