Summary
Katie Louchheim served as Vice Chairman in the political waters of the Democratic Party and official Washington for four decades. This personal and political memoir, covering 1946 through the late '60's, is filled with warm memories and revealing anecdotes about the men and events of those years. Katie knew Presidents, Senators, and party leaders intimately, and here she portrays her famous friends with candor, warmth and affection. She recalls the difficult but rewarding tasks of a party worker, the frantic exuberance of the campaign tour, the wearing monotony of the testimonial dinner and the ingenious methods she worked out to involve women more fully in political life
