A huge inspiration for me was and is Margaret Thatcher, former Prime Minister of Great Britain.
She was the first truly powerful woman politician on the world stage during my early adulthood and the first woman to lead a major Western democracy. As I learned firsthand in my interview with her, she was a formidable intellect, had tremendous command of her facts, could hold her own in any forum, both domestic and international, and dominate many. She also had a clear sense of the essential role Britain and the United States have in protecting and defending the Western ideals of individual liberty and economic freedom. Her pointed criticism of the then Soviet Union gained her the moniker, the “Iron Lady,” which indeed she was.
