Plain Dealer columnist Connie Schultz was at the top of her game in 2006. She had a Pulitzer Prize under her belt. And then her husband former congressman Sherrod Brown made a run for the Senate, and that reduced her identity a bit. She told ideastream's Eric Wellman, "I'm really proud of Sherrod, but I wasn't hired to be a senator's wife... My job is not to be his wife. That's a role I've chosen. I'm Sherrod's wife, and my job is to be a newspaper columnist." After spending months being introduced with the words "...and his lovely wife," Connie Schultz took that as the title of her memoir of life on the campaign trail. She'll join Dan Moulthrop and take your calls on the Sound of Ideas, Tuesday morning at nine on 90.3.
