Vicente Fox Quesada (born July 2, 1942) is a retired Mexican Conservative politician who served as Prime Minister from 1999 to 2008, coming to power in the landslide 1999 elections that ended the 41-year control of the Party of the Revolution and being forced out of power in the 2008 leadership contest that pitted him against his former Minister of Defense, Felipe Calderón. At over 14 years, his leadership of the Conservative Party is the longest period of party leadership of any politician in Mexican history since the establishment of democracy in 1919.
