The issue confronter: Bill Clinton

Question: Considering all spheres of endeavor, who would you nominate as Leader of the Year in 2010? Why?

Pardon the short entry since I'm on the road, but I'd nominate Bill Clinton. He took on Haiti when he didn't need to and also has been called in to help President Obama sell his economic agenda. I don't always agree with his politics or his approach, but I think he has shown a willingness to take on the tough issues despite their unpopularity.
