An Amazing man?.. Well, I love the justification for him winning this now marginilized pile of shit. "For criticizing American Policy."

Nothing more than a swipe at W. and his administration.

You just don't like Democrats. Besides, this was the "Nobel Peace Prize," not the "Nobel War Prize."

You don't seem to understand why he won, and with that attitude, you probably never will.

From CNN.com

Announcing the winner on Friday, the five-member Norwegian Nobel Committee praised Carter's decades of "untiring effort to find peaceful solutions to international conflicts, to advance democracy and human rights, and to promote economic and social development."

"In a situation currently marked by threats of the use of power, Carter has stood by the principles that conflicts must as far as possible be resolved through mediation and international cooperation based on international law, respect for human rights and economic development," the Nobel Committee said.


Congratulations, President Carter.

Carter has set the standard for ex-presidential behavior. He puts his beliefs into action, as demonstrated by his endless support of Habitat for Humanity.

Just a thought (and not related to Carter), but does the Nobel committee have a narrow view of those eligible as a Peace Prize winner? Peace is sometime obtained by taking a hawkish attitude. Forty years of enormous destructive power in the now unified Germany is gone. Does that qualify as peace?

Congratulations!!!!

The man is absolutely inspirational to anyone who is a global citizen. I'm surprised he hasn't been honored with the Nobel Peace Prize before this.

Even the fact that people nominated Bono for his humanitarian contributions to the world is a supreme honor. This award celebrates lifetime achievements, so I would not be surprised to see him honored one day...cause I don't think he's going to stop caring and being 'the Pest'.

Indeed. I think his actions have been proven over the past two decades that he is instrumental for peace.

I think that, in this case, it is certainly possible for peace, but this judgment in regards to the current "war on terror" will only be achieved by time; seeing as to whether these actions will indeed inspire peace, if these actions will only achieve American economical dominance, or if these actions will only inflame violence. Again, the only way to see this is through the passage of time, hence making judgment on Bush or Blair and their actions thus far to be highly premature.

I always thought Jimmy C to be an extriordiary humanitarian

The best President- No.
Humanitarian? Yes

Too honest and revealing in Playboy Interview?- Yes

A good decent human being who brought 2 men together at Camp David?-yes

He deserves the prize..

In my opinion:

The man was too good a human being to be president.

This probably sounds strange, but, this is how I feel. I have the utmost respect for him as a human being.

I think Jimmy Carter earned this Prize. He's championed human rights in so many ways--from monitoring elections to make sure they're democratic to supporting Habitat for Humanity and so much else. Congrats to a fellow native of the U.S. South.

it was interesting, or tiresome probably is a better word, I turned on some of the conservative pundits today just to hear what their reaction would be, and of course they set out bashing the credibility of award and its voters, I guess the very idea of a "peace prize" is lost on those who clamor for war, someone even went as far as to blaim to rise of Bin Laden on Carter for granting amnesty to draft dodgers of Vietnam, thus "paving the way for Clinton to become president," and "creating" the situation in Afghanistan... and there are still people who give this man's program an ounce of credibility? (I'm talking about Rush btw, no he didnt actually say those words himself, he had one of his "callers" say that for him, but everyone knows he only takes screened calls and most definitely knew what this caller's agenda was, to his credit he made a snickering laugh and said, "oh I hadn't even thought of that!")

mega dildos Rush...
