Ok, all the talk on the "blogosphere" is centered on President Obama's big Nobel Peace Prize. And yes, this has nothing, absolutely NOTHING to do with our blog.
But I thought this might be kind of a fun, mindless question to pose to you all: If the Nobel Prize existed in the 17th and 18th centuries, who would you nominate and why? Perhaps we need a few parameters as preface: you can only select one founding father, one pastor, one British citizen, one person from continental Europe and one "wild card."
Have at it!
