A Tribute To The “101st Senator”

A Tribute To The “101st Senator”
April 08, 2006 09:44 AM EST

I have written previously about the importance of Mrs. Miles (Margo) D.B. Carlisle, who, almost invisibly, managed to be one of the most important conservatives of our time. Senators called her the 101st Senator.
They were correct. First as Executive Director of the Senate Steering Committee (the caucus of conservatives), later as Director of the Senate GOP Conference, Executive Director of the Council for National Policy, Vice President of the Heritage Foundation, and an Assistant Secretary of Defense under Caspar N. Weinberger, she was consulted more and more about the Senate Rules and later on policies of cosmic importance. Her favorite was Senator James B. Allen (D-AL), as both had studied the rules and precedents of the Senate and when working together were dynamite. Yet Margo never acknowledged that she had been meeting with Allen and the Senator never acknowledged his Republican consultant. At one time they had the Senate completely tied up. Better that than passing bad legislation. Talk about the odd couple. One was from the educated East and the other from the backwater of one of the poorest States in the Union.

The above is from The Conserative Voice. I have found some very interesting articles there.
