TZIPI LIVNI, 48, ISRAEL

TODAY: Foreign minister and vice– prime minister in the new Kadima Party, co - created last year with former prime minister Ariel Sharon and other prominent political figures.

TOMORROW: She is touted as the next Golda Meir—prime minister of Israel from 1969 to 1974, and the only other woman to have served as foreign minister.

BACKSTORY: Raised in a family of hard-core Zionists (her parents both fought for the underground Irgun Zvai Leumi movement), Livni has been publicly firm about her belief in a two-state solution. Though she only decided to enter politics at 37, she’s Israel’s own Sidney Bristow, boasting a four-year stint with the country’s legendary Mossad spy agency.
