The Hill newspaper, which covers all things political in Washington, annually reports its take on the most fetching Beltway insiders. While 50 are listed, only the top 10 are actually ranked.

Lance Chester, who is 40 and married, describes herself as just a “mountain gal” who is descended from a “long line of bootleggers and moonshiners.”

Oh, and in case you were wondering, and we’re sure you were, number 1 on the list is Rep. Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.).
