Congratulations on being awarded 2009 Nobel Peace Prize, perhaps the highest honor for global leaders. You have been facing a few tough sells:
- War in Iraq, Afghanistan. Legacy of your predecessor
- Healthcare Reform. Most Americans realize it is needed. . . just that the legislators need the right nudge to make it happen.
- Economy . . Don’t need to describe this one.
The most recent debacle, flying all the way to IOC to root for your hometown, Chicago, only to be shown the thumbs down must have been a letdown.
Being conferred this global honor should re-ignite the spirit of "Yes, we can" . . . . at least when it comes to a few big ticket items: Healthcare reform for one?!
