Leader of the Free World

Posted by Mary Fran on February 11, 2004

I'm an international studies student, and I'm doing a paper on Thomas Jefferson and his ideas of foreign policy. While reading an article on this subject, I found a statement about the United States being at the forefront of the free world and the president hence the Leader of the Free World. I guess it's not really a saying, but do you know who coined this now frequently-used phrase? Thanks.
