Howard Fineman: Democrats Want Ashley Judd to Run Against Mitch McConnell in 2014

The Huffington Post's Howard Fineman said Sunday that Democrats in Kentucky are hoping actress Ashley Judd will run against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) in 2014.

This happened on the syndicated Chris Matthews Show (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):

"I’m already moving on to 2014," teased Fineman. "Democrats are desperate to beat Mitch McConnell in Kentucky, the icon of Republicanism in the Senate. They think they have a candidate in Kentucky to run against him."

"No kidding, Ashley Judd, who's from Kentucky and very active," Fineman continued with a straight face. "That's my old beat. They want her, I know they want her. The money people in Kentucky want Ashley Judd."

What actual political experience does Judd have to become a U.S. Senator?

None.

I guess that makes her the perfect Democrat candidate.
