Larry Davis’ recent column (“Obama’s Nobel achievement,” Nation, Oct. 12) misses the point about shock over President Obama’s winning the Nobel Peace Prize. When it was announced, everyone I talked to, from all walks of life, was floored and said, “For what?” As the conversation continued, they were clearly embarrassed.

Mr. Davis tries to make the point that this prize is for future achievements. I believe that this prize will only hinder the president in achieving a meaningful foreign policy because he will evaluate every step based on justifying the prize rather than on doing what is in the best interest of the United States.
