Congratulations, Al

He thought he lost the biggest contest of all.

This year he took home the Oscar and the Emmy. And now the most distinguished award in the world, the one they save for folks like Albert Schweitzer, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King, Elie Weisel.

People are saying he should run for President. But at this point, I think he's got better things to do with his time.
