Ashley Judd may run for Kentucky Senate
Celebrities could provide progress without politics
I was pleased to hear that Ashley Judd may be running for the Senate [“Ashley Judd closer to Ky. Senate race,” News, Feb. 16]. In the past, I haven’t supported celebrities in political office. Arnold Schwarzenegger certainly proved to be a disappointment. However, Al Franken appears to apply the same passion he had for comedy to his Senate seat.
Ashley Judd may be just the representation needed in Washington, with a passion for the issues and a lesser focus on politics. Maybe we should have all of Congress made up of celebrities. This could bring a return to focusing on the issues without pandering to lobbyists and big business as so many of our members of Congress are doing.
Go Ashley. You would have my vote if I lived in Kentucky.
