That's what Danish publication Politiken suggests in an editorial: "Obama is, of course, greater than Jesus - if we have to play that absurd Christmas game. But it is probably more meaningful to insist that with today's domestic triumph, that he has already assured himself a place in the history books - a space he has good chances of expanding considerably in coming years."

Scandinavia loves Obama: Norway gave him the Nobel Prize, and now Denmark is pointing out how obviously greater than Jesus he is. No pressure, Sweden.
