I say, don't vote for any incumbents until they get the message. Do the job or you're going home next election.
why get rid of a good person if they are voting in your favor?? That's not good !

if you believe the person she would be replacing is better. That's why we vote....

Maybe they are, but if you send back the same people who are there now, odds are, you'll just get the same thing. Dump the whole apple cart I say....

She knows nothing about politics. You can't just pick up another hat (become something else) and put it on after she has worn a actress all her life. It is an insult to Mitch McConnel that she is even thinking about taking his place. Get a grip Ashley and stick with your scripts in Hollywood! The Democrats are brainwashing you into thinking you are material for such a high position!
Get over yourself.

That's the problem I think. The current politicians know TOO MUCH about politics and not about getting anything done.

And how does one know, what Ashley Judd knows. Maybe, like many of us, she knows it is not working and that is enough. Shucks, if she can balance her bank account she's ahead of most of them.... LOL

We need to start the CCC again all people who have the capacity to wipe their ass clean the kitchen and house, cook, mow the yard, paint or hunt and fish have the capacity to work for their money. Put them at our state parks doing maint on our buildings working in the kitchens cleaning or whatever. When that's over it's off to Kudzu eradication!

Not voting for ANY federal incumbents in 2014. The whole damn lot of them are useless, on both sides. We need term limits in Congress, and everyone knows it. Every damn one of them are too busy being politicians and not being statesmen.

Don't worry about Ashley. She's got too much sense to try to oust the old man. She'll do better just rallying at protests, just to show her pretty face. I like her. She's got some good ideas, but she's not and probably never will be a politician, which is probably a good thing.

So tired of hearing about her so called ivy league education. That mid life major or whatever she has is not a real ivy league degree. It is more like adult education that any slob can go and get. I believe they accept everyone for that degree.
I don't think Ashley Judd would be a good senator. The Democrats could and should be able to come up with a much better candidate. But I take offense at your "adult education that any slob cna go and get" comment.

and another idiot who doesn't fact check. she has a degree and is in fact a very intelligent woman. she has been on the board of directors of shaker village of plesant hill. she was born here and would make a remarkable senator. mitch the bitch has don nothing for this state and has amassed a 33 million dollar fortune while just being our senator. He sucks the coal teat and takes any and all handouts from wealth. his wife is one of the few woman members of the good ole boys club. he is a greedy dangerous man he cares for his money not ky. and as for ashley at all the uk games another reason to vote for her. i hear mitch louisville fan. sorry i do not like this man

Saying someone has a degree from a university when they actually attended a few months of a mid career masters program is a slap in the face to those with actual degrees. Schools do this for celebrities to get the publicity for the school and the celebrity. Mid career masters are generally only 8 credit hours and not worth the paper they are printed on. So saying Judd has a masters degree from Harvard is incorrect. Saying she spent a couple of month there and got a useless mid career master degree because she's famous is more correct.

she can be a senator and a good one -look if rand paul can get elected any one has a shot. Believe me she can raise the money, get the press behind her, get women behind her, even eastern ky -there has got to be more to do to help the people there than a few dangerous jobs in coal, destroying the beauty there. No one tried tourism because the rich coal owners were too busy whacking the tops off our mountains. and i think its time to get the politicians out of office. im tired of them all.

Why should we elect a 3rd senator for Tennessee ? She needs more of a reason than beat Mitch. Like the letter in the hearld liberal ... Demos want a Kentucky resident to run and is famous, see if the turtle man is available. At least he lives here.

Pfft. More likely McConnell bugged his own office and conveniently 'found' the footage.

Guy's a freaking snake. Needs to be OUT. I don't even care who replaces him, a Democrat or a primary challenger. He needs to be OUT of office.

Mitch will go. He has done a flat nothing for KY and I defy anyone to name something. He's had a total of 1 job aside from congress as an ASSistant to LOUISVILLE's District Attorney. So that means he's made himself a multi-millionaire on our government dole with information on stocks the rest of us didn't have.

The woman he's married to came to us straight from the Bush/Chaney cabinet as SEC OF LABOR! Now let's don't forget that when Bush/Cheney left office we were loosing 75,000 jobs a MONTH...

She broke up his marriage, why in the world she wanted him is anybodies guess. Her parents donated $80,000 to GOP last year so coupled with the Mountain Top Blasting 'OUT of State' Coal money he's rolling.

Nope, Ashley isn't running but I have an idea I could run my dog and make a better case that he could better take orders from the majority of KY than ole Mitch the fool. He's voted for anybody who'll grease his palm and he don't care who he has to blow to keep that job and it sure aint us.

He voted AGAINST the 'jobs bill' that would've brought AT LEAST 27,000 infrastructure jobs and those were not just roads they were towers, water systems, school improvements and the lot. Coupled with Ky's money from the taxes from those jobs we could've gone further and the 'jobs bill' polled in FAVOR OF at 78%! YET still he voted 'no'.

He's done nothing but stagnated the Senate to the point they cannot move with his filibusters! One day he got so excited he made national news by filibustering himself!!! Priceless...

Mitch is a Bush/Cheney throw back and as long as he and Rand Paul who by the way only wanted the job as a step towards presidency, not to further 'term limits' as promised, KY will NEVER get out of this hole he keeps us in. Mitch has NO intentions of even retiring in KY. If it's the last thing he does he will make 'mountain top blasting' legal, take his money and go.

And for those of you repub/tea party that long for the good old days of just 5 short years ago, go peddle your new found intellect someplace else. Thanks to the democrats we are slowly belly crawling out of the hole you have dug for us, ending the wars you have started, paying off the debt Bush/Cheney racked up, financing the Bush/Cheney private army Homeland Security that has NEVER cost less than 1 TRILLION dollars a year, opening back up the workforce, Wall St has broke it's own records for a month now, the rich have never been richer, so don't blame us for taking care of your poor, we have GAINED jobs EVERY month YOU were BLEEDING jobs at the rate of 750,000 a MONTH when you left office.

Since it turned up 2 months after the meeting my guess is the person who recorded it got to know Mitch and became more than a little disenchanted with his tactics & decided to expose him for who he really is. By the time they did, Ashley had already pulled out of the race.

They probably gave it to 'Mother Jones Magazine' because they were the ones who exposed Romney and his 47% tape.'Mother Jones' is not going to open themselves up for a lawsuit so it was done legit.

That business about his home wrecker wife was ONE TWEET that was taken back from a guy that said since she was Secretary of Labor under Bush/Cheney AND Chinese, she was probably the reason all our jobs were sent to China. It was QUICKLY removed and he apologized, though she went on TV and whined and cried racism, and they're still bawling.
