Great leaders are often made during the worst possible times. Franklin Roosevelt and Winston Churchill would be relegated to relative obscurity were it not for their pivotal leadership leading up to, and during, World War II. They led the charge that ultimately liberated millions and are now considered two of the greatest leaders in world history. More recently, George W. Bush, in the days following the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attack provided what the country needed at that time. He was viewed as a leader, even by those who did not see him as such on Sept. 10.
