As Liberia’s first elected leader after a devastating civil war, she has juggled enemies and allies while pushing this country on its first sustained course of economic growth in decades. … Ms. Johnson Sirleaf is the first woman elected president of an African country, a Nobel Peace Prize winner, and arguably the most recognized leader on the continent. … But Ebola is threatening to derail that legacy…” (10/30).
