Senator Brown didn’t make the top 10 list, but he was listed as one of the top 50 in The’s 50 Most Beautiful People on Capitol Hill

Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio)
Age: 54
Hometown: Mansfield, Ohio
Political party: Democrat
Dating status: Married to wife, Connie Schultz

Ohio?s Democratic senator may not be as sharply dressed as his home-state colleague, House GOP leader John Boehner, or as smoothly polished as another Midwestern freshman, Barack Obama of Illinois. But Sherrod Brown?s combination of rumpled cool and passionate progressivism makes him the unsung beauty of the upper chamber.

For proof of Brown?s stealthy sex appeal, look no further than the new campaign memoir of his wife, Cleveland Plain Dealer columnist Connie Schultz. Her tome, ?And His Lovely Wife, chronicles Brown?s rise from seven-term House member to senator?and his dedication to making his marriage to Schultz even stronger in the process.

Brown leaves his wife love notes, takes her to the theater, serenades her with the Beatles, and manages to seem winning even while driving her crazy. After all, how could a woman not fall for an workers?-rights advocate who wears a pin with a canary in a cage instead of the ubiquitous American flag, all while lovingly calling his wife ?baby??
