It is certainly an extraordinary time. Just moments ago in a live online broadcast, the Norwegian Nobel Committee announced the President of United States, Barack Obama, as the winner of the prestigious Nobel Peace Prize for 2009.   The foundation honored the President for "his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples". It also stated that "Only very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the world's attention and given its people hope for a better future."
