Ashley Judd Treks to DC As She Mulls Senate Run

AshleyJudd030113Ashley Judd is in Washington as she mulls a run for Senate, meeting with party operatives and lawmakers but also delivering a speech today at a George Washington University student forum.

Politico reports that the speech she gave, followed by a Q&A, was uneven.

James Hohmann writes that she talked about getting involved in poverty relief at the urging of Bono, "ignored what she herself jokingly
referred to as the 'elephant in the room' during a 90-minute appearance
full of moments that cast doubt on her ability to wage a serious
statewide campaign."

Her complete speech, via C SPAN, is here.
