Sully Obama Peace Prize Reax

Sorry, I was up till 2 finishing my column.

If any person has done more to advance some measure of calm, reason and peace in this troubled word lately, it's president Obama. I think the Cairo speech and the Wright speech alone merited this both bridging ancient rifts even while they remain, of course, deep and intractable. He has already done more to heal the open wound between the West and Islam than anyone else on the planet.

I'd just add one caveat: the American people who elected him deserve part of the credit too. Now he needs partners to help him.
