I also think that the whiny Mat has redeemed himself, becoming the General and embracing his fate rather than running away from it. And he does take his lumps with more humor than mopey Perrin and Rand.
Well to be fair to Perrin, he's certainly redeemed himself for moping. As of the end of ToM, he's embraced his role and appears to be the only one of three who self-actualized. I don't count Rand, because he had supernatural help from LTT's memories. Plus his whiny, mopey, non-embrasure was way worse than Perrin's.

Mat, though, still can't seem to figure out exactly what he wants to do.
