Obama Wins 2009 Nobel Peace Prize

Poll #1468799 Obama Nobel Prize

In your opinion, did Barack Obama deserve to receive the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize?

Yes
17(17.9%)
No
47(49.5%)
I'm not sure
25(26.3%)
Other (what?)
6(6.3%)


Edit: I decided to do some research on the criteria for awarding the prize, which is set out in Alfred Nobel's Last Will and Testament as follows:

The Peace Prize should be awarded "to the person who shall have done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses."
