Thought on the occasion of President Barack Obama getting Nobel Peace Prize. Surely puts him in elite company. And to my mind what is most significant is how this signals a change in award giving policy/committee. When it comes to Nobel Prizes, whatever be the field, history is littered with examples of deserving individuals not receiving it, for one reason or another. So most interesting to see that for once potential being recognized, and early. Looks like change has come to the Nobel prize giving process too.
