Saira's Nobel Round-Up

December 10, 2009

When U.S. president Barack Obama was first announced as the recipient of the Nobel Peace prize he said he would accept it as a "call to action".
He said he wasn't sure he'd done enough to deserve it.
Maybe that's why he's keeping a low profile while in Oslo, Norway to receive the award today.
Reports say Obama is skipping a lot of the events Nobel prize winners usually participate in.
The Daily Beast website has a round-up of what the Norwegian media has to say about that.
And the Telegraph says that's why Obama is unpopular with some of the locals before he even gets there.
The ceremony starts around 7 a.m. ET.
Tune into the show to hear what Obama says in his Nobel lecture.
