“Winning” the Nobel simply for not being George W. Bush was absurd. Obama should have declined the prize and let it go to someone more deserving.

Judgments improve with age, but it’s OK to make provisional interim assessments. If Trump had somehow matched Buchanan’s four years of misdeeds within in two months, then I’d happily concede his worstness. But that hasn’t happened.
