The Nobel Peace Prize has become something of a bad joke in the last decade or so. It is awarded by Norwegian socialists to someone they admire, pretty mcuh without regard to what the winner has actually done. The list of recent winners reads like a collection of losers, terrorists ,misfits and incompetent pols. This award to Gore however means that no one will ever take it seriously again. It wil be like the Pulitzer Prizeand other various journalism prizes in this country. Something of no value reserved for PC liberals. One basic question. If his global warming crisis-mongering is so important, why didn't he win in a scientific category? The answer is obvious. Those disciplines still value the Nobel Prize and will not let it be tarnished by cheap political stunts. The possible good news is that the pressure for him to get into the presidential race may now be nearly irresistible. He hates Hillary and would like nothing better than to spoil her coronation. Unlike Hillary, who is a determined professional politician, Gore is such an obvious opportunistic weasel that he will stand little chance in the general election. I can still recall the collective sighs of relief after 9/11 that he was not president.
