Dear Nobel Committee

Although Obama is no doubt a great guy, and has made a lot of promises, he hasn't actually had time to do anything yet. Your decision to give him the Nobel Peace Prize is incomprehensible. You have not done him any favors with this honor, and in fact may have damaged his ability to accomplish what you want him to do.

I understand that the Nobel Peace Prize is all about Hope and not reality, but seriously, Obama has been in office less than a year.

Someday I hope Obama lives up to your award, but I think giving it to him now was premature. The man is trying to nudge a behemoth. Giving him more controversy just isn't going to help.
