CNN Republican strategist Ed Rollins says the award should be based on what someone has done, not what they might do.
"I think this may be way too preliminary," Rollins said on CNN's American Morning. "At the end of four years, maybe he has accomplished something and deserves it. I think it has diminished the award itself."
I think certainly you have to give him an "A" for trying," Rollins also said. But at the end of the day, what has he accomplished? Who on the world stage are his allies at this point in time?"
