In my opinion, there is a strong reason why President Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize. It was something almost imperceptible, but I'm sure I heard it, and even felt it myself.
It was the almost audible collective sigh that every nation gave when they heard he won the U.S. Presidential election.
You know how satisfying a sigh can be, especially one of that magnitude. A sigh of relief is one of the best feelings a world can experience. So if one man can do that for the entirety of the world, if he can make it sigh, then by golly give him the prize!
