By Patrick Maney

Any list of best United States senators would have to include "Young Bob" La Follette (1895-1953), the son of four-time Wisconsin governor and U.S. senator "Fighting Bob" La Follette, who entered politics at the age of thirty, an easy victor in the special primary held to fill his father's seat upon his death. Young Bob served as the principal architect of Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal, devoting his career to labor rights and civil liberties and writing legislation that endures to the present day.
