Steve Manskar posted this on this Facebook profile, and it is a really good history lesson on the Nobel prize from Rachel Maddow. It somewhat reduces the dismay I felt yesterday at the news that Obama had won it. I did not realize how many of the previous winners had NOT YET achieved what they were fighting for. Often, the prize was a MOMENTUM builder; and encouragement, a vote of confidence. OK. I can go with that.
And I am with Rachel on the â€œDerangement Syndromeâ€. Nasty stuff.
