    Crazy! And for those naysayers who are whining that he hasn't done anything, pray tell what has Gore done?
    What has Carter done? Krugman done?
    What Obama embodies by his very being, is so much more than all of those combined. What he means to the so much people, the bully pulpit that he alone occupies is so much more that a whole host of people combined.
    If we should take a critical look (the history, their accomplishment, their organizations and who were the real movers within them) at even some of the most revered and universally approved recipients, I contend that Obama is at the very least, as deserving as the best of them.
