Statement of U.S. Rep. Kendrick B. Meek on President Obama Winning the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize

U.S. Rep. Kendrick B. Meek released the following statement after President Obama was awarded the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize:

“President Barack Obama is a transformational leader whose agenda for hope extends beyond our nation's borders. I witnessed the power of American diplomacy firsthand as a member of the U.S. Delegation that traveled with our Commander in Chief to the Summit of the Americas in April. Although he was the most junior statesman there, world leaders regarded him as the head of state most able to affect change in our hemisphere. The presidency is the most powerful position in the world and today the responsibility that comes with that office was only reinforced. President Obama's platform to make everlasting change for the better in our world just got bigger."
