    He got it for being black, elected as president of the US and still being alive nearly a year later.

    He hasn't actually done anything else.

    I Heard a media commentator today to say that he felt Obama won it not for what
    he did but for not being George Bush and i feel there is more than a grain of truth
    in that statement. Seems to be a very politically motivated decision,definitely puts
    added pressure on Obama to perform as such.

    Mahatma Gandhi was nominated 4 times and never won it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Henry Kissinger - mass muderer/ war criminal (excuse my bias) was a joint winner in 1973 for getting bored with bombing the shit out of SE Asia (oops there goes my prejudice again)
