Had the world not suffered eight years of George W. Bush, Obama would not be receiving the Prize. He's prizeworthy and praiseworthy only by comparison."

The Nobel Peace Prize is in the right hands of Barack Obama

Contents

Background and Context of Debate:

Politics: It is politically justifiable?

Pro

  • It can help B. Obama in future negotiations. Given the great importance and fame of the Nobel Peace Prize, failed or failing (or "problematic") states (state leaders) can see this act of giving the NPP to Barack Obama as a warranty that the American president is willing to negotiate instead of ignoring/attacking the rough states. It can place in Obama's hands even greater power and thus help him in his future missions.
