Striving for a brighter future (Courier-Mail)

By Tess Livingstone
Name: Michael Ware
Position: Journalist
Age: 37
Prediction: The former lawyer and Courier-Mail journalist has spent several years covering Afghanistan and Iraq for Time magazine, immersing himself in both sides of the conflict, at great personal risk. He is seen in US as a leading commentator on Iraq. Expect to see Ware establish himself as a leading voice in the US political debate.
