Obi-Wan said this to Anakin when the Jedi Council refused to grant him the rank of Master. Anakin was not only very, very strong in the Force, he was also a Jedi Knight that was far and beyond the ordinary. Obi-Wan's thoughts about Anakin being given a great honor to sit on the Council at such a young age really didn't amount to much to Anakin. Anakin wanted to be a Master, and after his rescue of the Chancellor and victory over Dooku, he should have been greatly considered to be a Master regardless if Palpatine was meddling in Jedi affairs or not. Considering that Windu, Yoda, Ki-Adi, and the rest of the Jedi Council wanted Anakin to spy on the Chancellor as a assignment, it seems to me that granting him the rank of Master was the least they could do in exchange for this treasonous act that they were pressing him to do. They should have known that presenting Skywalker a gift of Council membership would slight him a great deal if they didn't make him a Master. Besides, something like that wasn't an everyday assignment. How many years during the 1,000 generations of the Jedi Order did the Jedi Council grant such a mission? Thoughts?
