We’re still calling her “actress Ashley Judd,” but the woman who looks more and more like Sen. Mitch McConnell’s 2014 campaign opponent was speaking today at George Washington University as a public health advocate, answering questions on “Progress and Perspectives: Women’s Reproductive Health.” She touched on plenty of other topics as well, though. If today’s appearance was an early indicator of what the campaign will sound like, McConnell will have his hands full.

We suspect the president would like one of these handy “No press beyond this point” signs.

So, did we mention the speech touched on a wide range of women’s reproductive health issues, from Judd’s Kentucky roots to her brushes with Bono and Bill Clinton? Here are some highlights.

If you’re still not sure if Judd has political potential, check out her statesman-like exit.

So, what are the chances that we’ll see Sen. Judd at the 2015 swearing-in ceremony?


Any follow-up questions?
