On December 10 2009, President Obama gave his Nobel Prize acceptance speech at the Oslo City Hall.  He was the first sitting president to receive the prize since Woodrow Wilson.  The speech was interesting in how he juxtaposed the philosophical need for war, in light of recent events in Afghanistan and Iraq, with an acceptance of a peace prize.  Clearly, it was an eloquent talk intended to be experienced again after some aging, much like a fine wine.  I wonder how this speech will feel when sampled many years in the future.
