Gore wins Nobel Peace Prize; Breaks the Democratic/Republican tie

From the New York Times:

"Gore wins Nobel Peace Prize" The Norwegian Nobel Committee awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for 2007 on Friday totie former US Vice President Al Gore and the United Nations' climate panel, citing the importance of battling global warming.”




That makes
Democrats 3, Republicans 2.

We're now winning, breaking the Nobel Prize tie.

On the Democratic side:

Jimmy Carter won the Nobel Peace prize in 2002, “for his 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 1919, Woodrow Wilson won, for being founder of the League of Nations.

And now, Al Gore and bringing the issue of global warming to the international scene. And he won an Academy award for the film, “An Inconvenient Truth”. Not bad.

On the Republican side: Teddy Roosevelt won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1906 for negotiating the 1905 peace treaty between Russia and Japan after the Russo-Japanese War.

Oh, yeah, and Henry Kissinger won the Prize in 1973, sharing it with Le Duc Tho of the Democratic Republic of Viet Nam for jointly negotiating the Vietnam peace accord.

And how many Republican presidents have won the Nobel Peace Prize in the last 100 years?

Hmm, let see…None. Zilch. Zip. Nada. We have two wins.

Not even one Academy Award, either. And they elected a b-movie actor as president, too.

Go, Al. Thanks for being the tie breaker. Any thoughts on the 2008 Presidential race?

Yeah, but TR, if he were alive today, would kick any conservative's ass. The "Party of Lincoln" (and TR) has strayed into some sort of neo-fascist territory.

Why do you review Teddy Roosevelt's Prize and then say that no Republican Presidents have won?
