Obama's Notre Dame Degree for being "Inspiring"

I’m sure glad I didn’t earn my degree for just trying:

Vincent Rougeau, a professor of law at Notre Dame, said the language was just right.

“I think it’s good,” Rougeau said. “It identifies things he has done or attempts to do. The university invited him and he’s a dignitary that they’re welcoming. They drafted an elegant statement as to why they felt he was deserving of the invitation they extended.”

And what is he attempting to do?

“A community organizer who honed his advocacy for the poor, the marginalized and the worker in the streets of Chicago, he now organizes a larger community, bringing to the world a renewed American dedication to diplomacy and dialogue with all nations and religions committed to human rights and the global common good.

“Through his willingness to engage with those who disagree with him and encourage people of faith to bring their beliefs to the public debate, he is inspiring this nation to heal its divisions of religion, culture, race and politics in the audacious hope for a brighter tomorrow.”

“Inspiring this nation to heal its divisions of religion, culture, race and politics” ? ? ?  Really?  I would venture that there has never been a time in recent history when more have felt alienated toward our government.
