MDR Figaro Interviews ASL About President Obama’s Nobel Prize

MDR Figaro, a leading culture and news radio program for the Mitteldeutschland region (Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt, Thuringia) interview American Studies Leipzig about the significance of President Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize. Crister Garrett noted that only about thirty percent of Americans think the President truly earned the prize, in short not just Republicans but Democrats too. Overall the prize comes at a critical time in the Obama presidency, a period where American voters are still deeply insecure about the economy and very worried about the war in Afghanistan.


MDR Info Interviews ASL About President Obama and Nobel Prize
