Geopolitics in Eastern Europe: Micheil Saakashvili

Night Talk: Saakashvili, former president of Georgia, in 2003 led hundreds of thousands of protestors in a revolt against a corrupt elite, removing them from power during what has become knowns as the Rose Revolution.

He was elected president with a 96 percent majority. As an international icon of the movement towards reform and democracy, he later became a Ukrainian politician. As governor of Odessa, he eventually failed to win local support for his anti-corruption plans. Becoming stateless, he found refuge in the Netherlands, thanks to his being married to a Dutch woman. He is a gifted speaker on the current situation in Eastern Europe.
