Annals of Gambling

Last November I asked a group of friends what they thought the over-under was on when Obama would get his Nobel Peace Prize. The general consensus was 2011--the theory being that the Nobel Committee would think they were handing him a boost for his reelection campaign.

In retrospect, it's clear that the over on that line was a huge sucker's bet.

Did you specify his FIRST Nobel? Because obviously the Nobel committee can give him a Peace Prize in 2011 also. (As well as in 2010 and 2012.)
