WHITEFISH POINT, MICH.
What on Earth has happened to the Nobel Peace Prize, which once was easily the world's most prestigious award? Consider that in 1953, Albert Schweitzer and Gen. George C. Marshall were honored on the same day (with Winston Churchill winning the prize for literature, incidentally).
National Review's Jay Nordlinger, author of a book on the Nobel Peace Prize, told Deutsche Welle (DW) last year that the Swedish inventor's will may support the "fraternity between nations," but it is "a little like the U.S. Constitution: There are people who interpret it strictly, and people who interpret it liberally to mean whatever they want it to mean."
Jay said Mr. Romney would win "big."
