At the risk of lowering The Politicker’s tone, and in full knowledge that we may regret this, we’re accepting nominations for our first annual 10 Most Beautiful People in City Politics feature. (Look, it’s August. And we’ve been consuming too much Gawker around here.)

A secret algorithm combining reader enthusiasm and the objective evaluations of Observer aesthetics specialists will be used to determine the top 10.

Given that The Hill didn’t list a single New Yorker in its top 50 on Capitol Hill, 10 seemed like a safe number. New York politics, it has been said, is politics for ugly people.

Please don’t use the comments section for nominations. Send them to Politickerblog@gmail.com.
