I think Desmond's whole life is a big set up.
Brother Campbell, a friend of Ms. Hawkins (photo) finds him and fires him from the monastery just when Widmore sends Penny to get wine, saying Desmond was meant for a greater purpose. 
When he wants to marry Penny Ms. Hawkins make him change his mind, not Charles Widmore, because he needs to go to the island and push the button to save the world.
Libby gives him the boat.

On the island Desmond causes the oceanic crash by not pushing the button in time. As a consequence the swan implodes and Widmore finds the island. Widmore knew that Desmond would do anything to get back to Penny. He don't want him dead, he just uses him to find the island. Desmond himself was the tracking system.

So Desmonds destiny was going to the island and do what he did, so that every single one of us will live.
He doesn't push the button anymore and the world still exist. So his destiny was to make the island visible to Widmore.

Certainly possible, Leia, or perhaps the Economist's boss.

that makes sense. Sayid's trying to get to him while working for Ben and he is Ben's enemy so i would think so.
