From his early days as a rock music Promoter and a student of socialist thought at Oxford, Tony Blair has risen to become a member of parliament to prime minister of Great Britain in only fourteen years.
Finding inspiration in U.S. President Bill Clinton's own political strategy, the youthful Blair made his quick rise through the Labour Party's ranks largely by advocating modernisation of the party.
During his first term, he helped to negotiate a major peace settlement in Northern Ireland and was a strong leader in freeing Kosovo of Slobodan Milosevic. His second term brought an even larger challenge, with the attack on the United States in September 2001.
Since that attack, Blair had emerged as the primary supporter of the United States and worked hard to build military and humanitarian coalitions among world leaders and their countries. The merging of his political and religious lives has led Tony Blair to work diligently toward his version of a better world.
