Okay, before I read any commentary or blogs on the subject, here’s what I think we’ll be hearing.
From the right: Well, it’s obvious – Obama is the leader of a worldwide socialist conspiracy. Those Scandinavians and their lefty liberal prizes are just the tip of the iceberg.
From the left: Do you think this will help or hurt healthcare reform?
And my reaction? It’s odd to be awarding a prize for good intentions, and giving it to Woodrow Wilson didn’t advance world peace very far. But it does signify how dramatically the world’s opinion of America has shifted, which can’t hurt.
I keep wondering when Obama found out. Did he wake up to the news, as I did, and think “What?” as I did?
Let’s just hope he keeps wearing his Oneness lightly.
