Al Gore, Nobel Peace Prize Winner

Friday's One Cup of Java Challenge: Al Gore has been named a winner of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize (along with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change). However, he is not the first former U.S. vice-president to receive this honor. Your One Cup question on this Friday morning - who was the first former U.S. vice-president to win the Nobel Peace Prize?

Answer: Teddy Roosevelt, who won while he was President for his work on peace treaties. Roosevelt had been V.P. before taking over the White House.
