Obama Wins Nobel Peace Prize

On many levels it makes a lot of sense, but did anyone see this coming?

Details on how the President learned of the award this morning here.

A TPM commenter wonders if this isn’t a bit premature:

Isn’t it a little soon for this? Maybe after he brokers an Israeli-Palestinian agreement or something like that.

It sounds like the, ‘boy is the world relieved you guys didn’t choose McCain’ award.
