She's a lot easier on the eyes.

She is much smarter.

She isn't bitter at the government.

She goes to Kentucky basketball games.

I'd vote for her.

The logic of your reasons to vote for her are just fab. Sounds like you're an Obama voter.

Of course I am, but he's already won his election and has no bearing on this topic.

I would have to know more about her stands which most likely wouldn't come out until she began actively campaigning. But at this time I would say yes, I would support her.

Three reasons at this time (but I'll put the third in a separate post). First, she's pro freedom of choice. I'm a believer in the Government not having that type of authority over a woman. The second reason is Mitch McConnell is one of the obstructionists who has intentionally worked to slow recovery from the recession in an attempt made solely to make the President look bad with the goal of winning last month's election. People and families across the nation needlessly suffered due to that Republican tactic.

An example is a statement McConnell made in 2010.

"For the next two years, we canít let you (Obama/Biden) succeed in anything. Thatís our ticket to coming back."

My third reason. What has been done to help southern and eastern Kentucky (where I live)? Most of our counties are listed as the most poverty-stricken in the nation. What do the politicians do in answer? They draw and side-tract your attention away from doing real things by saying the word 'coal'. Has my part of Kentucky ever 'not been' poverty-stricken even in the heyday of coal? No, it hasn't.

The local politicians have power with the statewide politicians. The statewide ones need the support of the local ones. The local ones in rural areas like southeastern Kentucky 'do not' want us to grow. They would lose their little kingdoms they and their families have had for so long.

We badly need to change that. I think a new type blood ..... a new type way of thinking ..... one which cares about people, not about maintaining power, is the very thing we need. I believe Ashley Judd could be that very type thing.

Where I mentioned Kentucky having so many counties listed as the most poverty-stricken ..... of the 100 poorest counties in America, 16 of them are here in Kentucky. That's 16 percent of the list.

But people keep voting for who they have been. It keeps us with that many on the list.

Btw, what exactly has Mitch McConnell done for Kentucky? Especially for southern and eastern Kentucky? Name the things he's done? Not what he says he will do, but 'has' done.

It blows my mind that this state keeps voting Republican. All the most poverty stricken and least educated states were Romney all the way.

I condemn Mitch McConnell for his selfish stand against goverment support for building the busted up bridges in Kentucky.

He was made the offer and refused it to guard his egotistical image as a hard liner,..... but only because the eyes of the nation were on him.

Having said those embarrassing remarks concerning causing the President to fail, the nation was curious to see if he would take federal loans or grants to rebulid the Louisville bridge when it collapsed.

He made his stand clear on what exactly his priority is as the Senior Senator from Kentucky.

He snubbed the bridge funds in order to save himself face for having backed himself in a poitical corner and it was KENTUCKY who was sent to bed hungry and without a bridge so he could shine on FOX News.

I find that f a c s i n a t i n g.

Mitch should get an Oscar for his classic portrayal of a living functioning human being.

The thought of any right thinking human voting for Ashley Judd explains the disaster that is Barack Obama. Enjoy your tax raises....EVERYBODY....well, except for those who dont pay anyway, allowing Dimocrats to buy their votes with the money of working Americans.

Unless Ashley Judd moves to kentucky and make it her primary residence she can't run against Mitch. I am not a fan of Mitch, but I am even less of a fan of Ashley Judd. What has she done to prove that is would be capable of holding an elected office? Nothing that I know of. She needs to stick to what she knows best, going to UK basketball games and looking pretty for the cameras.

For starters, she hasn't promised to block economic recovery measures.

Like I said, I am no fan of Mitch. I lost faith in him a long time ago. All he cares about is lining his pockets with money. He don't care about the people anymore. The breaking point for me with him(and yes I am a proud republican) was when his wife, Elaine Lan Chao, was appointed as Labor Secretary did nothing to help Kentucky. Here was his one chance to help us and he failed miserably. To me he is no better than Nancy Pelosi. All either one care about is themselves and thier pockets. Both are two of the most corrupt politicians we have. They are just as bad as the president. But at least Mitch don't bow down to other countries and say they are sorry for things we either didn't commit or had to commit to keep america safe.
