President Barack Obama has been recently named as the latest Nobel Peace Prize winner, much to the surprise and amazement of not only the whole world but also the Nobel Peace Prize committee.
The decision brought controversy into the life of Thorbjørn Jagland, the chairman of the five-member committee who honored Obama with the prize. Jagland has been accused of personally pushing the choice for the award.
However, Lars Halvor Mageroy, commentary editor at Norwegian tabloid Verdens Gang defends the decision: "It's easy to see why a great visionary like Obama appeals to Jagland. People say that vision is all that Obama has to show at this point, but Jagland is a politician who finds that aspect of politics to be of great significance."
Perhaps it was Obama's quality as a visionary that appealed to Jagland or perhaps he looked at what the US President overcame and went through in his life on the way to the presidency. Regardless, Obama's life with or without the Nobel Peace Prize has so far been a success.
