Nobel Peace Prize Awarded To A President Who Actually Did Something..

Wall Street Journal reports that:

"The 2011 Nobel Peace Prize was awarded Friday to Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Liberian peace activist Leymah Gbowee and Tawakkul Karman of Yemen for their work on women's rights."
"Ms. Johnson Sirleaf, 72, is a Harvard-trained economist who became Africa's first democratically elected female president in 2005."

I for one find it an interesting idea to give the Nobel Peace Prize to a president AFTER she/he has actually accomplished something worthy of the prize and not before.
