(Woodrow Wilson - Last sitting President to get the Peace Prize)

When the Nobel Peace Prize was recently announced, and the recipient was none other than President Obama, people ran to their history books trying to figure out who was the last sitting President to receive such an honor.

It was Woodrow Wilson, 27th President (even though Wikipedia says 28) (1913-1920), oversaw our involvement in World War 1 and championed The League Of Nations.

If you've never heard him speak (and I suspect a lot of you haven't), here is a campaign address from the 1912 election, when he ran against the third party candidate Teddy Roosevelt (the other Peace Prize recipient - coming up shortly). He's speaking about the role of Labor.

Now you know.
