So... almost two years later: has Mr Obama done anything to justify his receipt of the Nobel Peace Prize?

I thought the prizes were given after the recipient's meritorious deeds.

(Not that I can name a pre-award justification).

I voted for Barak Obama and plan to do so again next year. But it's ridiculous to award the Peace Prize to a man just for getting elected.
