Nobel Prize: Watching Obama’s lecture

But tomorrow, starting at 1 pm Oslo time, at Oslo City Hall — 7 am in Washington — another chemistry altogether will be at work at the lectern where President Barack Obama delivers the Nobel Peace Prize Lecture.

Think of it as a celebration of political science, with the Nobel Committee itself sending a message that shouldn’t be too difficult for the world to decode.

The speech of the Nobel Prize-winning president — just the third sitting American president to win the prize – will be shown in real time on the Internet at the Nobel Prize Committee’s Website.

Two leading international human rights groups gave U.S. President Barack Obama mixed reviews on his human rights record on Wednesday, a day before he is slated to accept the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo. Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International urged Obama to use his acceptance speech on Thursday to renew U.S. leadership on human rights after its position was undermined by abuses committed during the Bush administration’s war on terrorism.
