PRO: The U.K.'s youngest PM in over a century, the "New" Labour leader boosted the country's health and education systems and quelled the violence in Northern Ireland before resigning in 2007. The '09 visiting Yale lecturer is now a potential candidate for President of Europe.
CON: In Britain, "Bush" and "Blair" are synonyms. His stalwart support of the Iraq War continues to cloud his legacy much of it bound up in his symbolic and utterly intellectual position as "Quartet" ambassador to Israel and Palestine and his country's opinion of him.
