In my opinion, it's a little bit too early to award Obama with the Nobel Peace Prize. He isn't even one year in his office. Lech Walesa, Nelson Mandela, Dalai Lama and Mikhail Gorbachev are some of the winners. I think the explanation of the committee is quite weak. The willingness to develop diplomatic relations or to be ready to discuss with other politicians should be a given no matter if some politicians avoid or avoided that.
