  •  Bad news, a Judd run would have enticed me to (5+ / 0-)

    volunteer.

      the back of my mind is when I read on the internet somewhere, probably Huffpost, that she was getting a divorce. I think that was just announced a month or two ago. Divorce is rough enough without lumping in a major campaign that would have garnered national attention ...that takes a lot of time and energy. And she does have another career too.

    •  Judd was never going to run for Senate. (0+ / 0-)

      Seen Ashley around.  Honestly, not down with the people.  not down with anyone, actually.  

      Here's one example.  At the KY inaugural ball in DC, Ashley couldn't be bothered to meet anyone.  Um, these are $$ peoplr.  Instead, she sat at a table, literally alone at a ten-seat table.  Couldn't bring herself to walk around to say hello to anyone.  Waited for folks to come up to praise her.  It was so Hollywood.  Which folks were doing, in a strange procession, because, hell, this is Ashley Judd.  Meanwhile, it was made clear that she would be more than welcome to be recognized, and if Judd wanted to say hello to a thousand or so folks in the room, as office holders were doing, no problem.  But Ashley declined.  Actually, never responded.  It really was a wtf thing.

      Next day, Ky. Dems had a reception.  Gov, Lt. Gov, current and former state constitutional officers.  A hundred folks, no pressure.  No Ashley.

      That's when I figured that this was a bad joke on a lot of folks who cared about her.

      Oh, and there's a slight problem with Ashley Judd's residency, as in the fact that she doesn't live in Kentucky.  She appears to live in TN.

      If Ashley wanted to help, she could raise some money for Grimes, who will need it badly.  I don't think Judd will do anything for Grimes.  Hope I'm wrong.

      Sorry for busting bubbles around here.
