Burgoo: Ashley Judd's decision

March 28, 2013 

As someone who has joyfully left the political arena — in part because of the brutal way modern politics treats candidates and their families — I can completely understand and commiserate with her decision.

I am also quite confident that we haven't seen the last of Ashley as a potential candidate, particularly after she has had a chance to thoroughly put to rest questions about her residency and her commitment to public service in her home state of Kentucky.
