Obama Wins Nobel Peace Prize to Mixed Reviews

U.S. President Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize on Friday for giving the world "hope for a better future" and striving for nuclear disarmament, in a surprise award that drew criticism as well as praise.

The decision to bestow one of the world's top accolades on a president less than nine months into his first term, who has yet to score a major foreign policy success, provoked gasps of surprise from journalists at the announcement in Oslo.

Wow, just wow. So, now you actually don't have to do anything to be rewarded, just give people hope and you get an award. Ridiculous.
