Flashback (May 2009): No Honorary Degree for Obama from Arizona State University

By now you've heard the news: President Barack Obama has been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.  In the acceptance speech he just wrapped up at the White House rose garden, Obama commented that he would "
accept this prize as a call to action."  Well, it's good to know now that he's won the award, he will actually try to do something to deserve it.

News is also out from Norway that the President will be traveling to Oslo in December to officially accept the award.

If you're not convinced the Nobel Prize Committee has now lost all credibility, consider this scene from just five months ago:

President Obama was invited by Arizona State University to deliver the commencement address during the May 13 graduation ceremony.  But unlike usual, as the commencement speaker at this event, Obama would NOT be granted an honorary degree.  Why?
"It's our practice to recognize an individual for his body of work, somebody who's been in their position for a long time," Sharon Keeler, an ASU spokeswoman, told The Associated Press. "His body of work is yet to come. That's why we're not recognizing him with a degree at the beginning of his presidency... It's someone who's really outstanding, who has made outstanding contributions in their field," Keeler said.
Wow.  ASU wasn't going to award Obama an honorary degree unless he accomplished something?  They must be racists.

Meanwhile, the Nobel Prize committee had lower expectations and standards for accomplishment in rewarding one of the most prestigious awards IN THE WORLD.
