Leon Panetta: Presidential Chief of Staff, CIA Director, and Secretary of Defense
This week's Remarkable Person is Leon Panetta. Leon had humble beginnings, his parents were Italian immigrants who owned a walnut farm in the Carmel Valley of California. He's had an impressive career as an attorney, White House Chief of Staff for Bill Clinton, Director of the CIA for Barack Obama, and he was the twenty-third secretary of defense.
He authored Worthy Fights: A Memoir of Leadership in War and Peace. He has experienced Washington and American politics from the inside and he's not afraid to share his opinions. He's principled and stood up for his beliefs against power. Leon's story is one that you won't want to miss.
