It is because he broke a milestone ...an odd habit.... He made it to office of president.... and he was not a rich old overweight white male.
Him for being him...was first.
For breaking the mold for 12 days of service... he was worthy of the Nobel peace prize.
The UN had a black president before the US did.
I think it was racially motivated.
For better or worse.
For 12 days of service I would like to hear a more logical answer than the one I offer ...
Well that makes more sense to me than what any official would probaly come up with

Yea but it takes away from the fact that his election had nothing to do with race The American people elected him. So actually his race is a poor reason...
shall have done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses
President Obama would have been in office for approx 12 days when the deadline for submission of nominees was closed.
What did he do in 12 days that made him special above so many others?
