Nobel Peace Prize leaureate Barack Obama may be succeeded in that honor by Wikileaks founder and Nobel Peace Price nominee Julian Assange. The latter was described as a "natural contender" for the Norwegian prize by virtue of "disclosing information about corruption, human rights abuses and war crimes." Assange would worthily join such luminaries as Al Gore (2007), Mohamed El Baradei (2005), Jimmy Carter (2002), the UN (2001) and Yassar Arafat (1994).

When they aren't honoring terrorists like Arafat and failures like the UN out of genuine ideological sympathy, the Nobel committee is trading its credibility for cheap, political pot-shots. How the (would-be) mighty are fallen.
