    Daniel Ortega's rise to power in Nicaragua was published widely and considered an important conflict during the Cold War. Ortega, a socialist revolutionary along with the FSLN, was regarded as a threat to the hemisphere's security by Ronald Reagan. For much of his life, he has been a leader in the Sandinista National Liberation Front.

    Ortega was defeated by Violeta Barrios de Chamorro in the 1990 presidential election, but he remained an important figure in Nicaraguan opposition politics. He was an unsuccessful candidate for president in 1996 and 2001 before winning the 2006 presidential election.
