President Obama Wins Nobel Peace Prize.

Now that the President is the surprise winner of this Nobel Peace Prize. I have a suggestion.  The actual cash prize is not insubstantial, so why doesn't he donate the proceeds to some organization like the National Association of Free Clinics.  The NAFC are the good folks who are bringing mobile medical and dental clinics to various locations in the US that are sorely in need of medical care for the working poor in this country.  Keith Olbermann has suggested that the NAFC should bring mobile clinics each week to the capital cities of each state in the union that is represented by a Blue Dog Democratic senator or a GOP senator sitting on the Senate Finance Committee who oppose the public option in the pending health care bills.  This is in the hope of shaming those servants of the health insurance companies into changing their position on the public option.
Mr. Obama gets a $400,000 year salary and has free rent  and great medical care.  He doesn't need the prize to live well.  He should donate it to push his desires for real health care reform in this county.  We should all write the President and urge him to do this.
