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.

There's been lots of criticism and praise for Al Gore being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Do you guys think Al Gore deserved the prize? http://crazynuggets.info/nobelprize/
