Ashley Judd is clearly preparing herself for a political career and we’re all for it. What the world of politics needs most of all is more women. Being an actress can be a hindrance and a help. Judd has a famous and likeable face, but her political capabilities are untested. (She has already established herself as a political activist and humanitarian.) But she has been quietly preparing herself for the right moment – most likely to run for the Senate in her home state of Kentucky. She earned a masters degree from the John F Kennedy School of Government at Harvard and is now enrolled in the Ph.D program at UC Berkeley. Her stellar education will more than make up for her lack of political experience. She’s got our vote!
