I love the guy, too, but this is nuts. If anyone in the political wing of the White House saw this coming and did anything other than try to derail it, that's incredibly bad (political) judgment. He was enough of a "european socialist" before this interference from the Norwegians.
Why the rush? I must say that one reason that came to mind is why Gandhi never won: he was assassinated.
Oh well, there's a tidal wave of commentary coming down the interwebs as we speak. I damn well hope there's a better reason than this crappy one.
When the records are unsealed decades hence, I just hope there's going to a better explanation than "we hated George so much"...
