How about a statue of him in the classic "thinker" pose? Below it a plaque list his one acheivement: "Nobel Peace Prize for...uhhh...something he wanted to do.".

What's he really thinking?: "How do I get out of this box I created for myself? Having called Afghanistan 'The Good War', I now want to run away as fast as possible. How do I keep my looney left peace-nics happy, yet not seem like a callous, coniving hypocrit? How do I do an old fashioned politician's tap dance and still call it Hope & Change? How do I make running away seem heroic and noble? Is that peace prize like a Monopoly 'Get out of jail free' card? Can I use it to make a feckless reversal seem noble? I've got to call those boys in Norway and see how that damn thing works!"
