Ashley Judd hasn't even officially announced her campaign for Senate, and she already has one vote!

No, Ashley Judd is not set to star in another political thriller; she's looking towards the real deal!

Gossip about the A-lister and social activist's plans to run for U.S. senate has been spreading faster than peanut butter and jelly, but it is now being predicted that she will in fact be announcing her Democratic nomination this May!

Even though the Missing star has yet to officially confirm the announcement, a source from MSNBC anticipates that Ashley will go up against Republican minority Mitch McConnell for the powerful position.

In a statement over the weekend, the actress said:

Ashley Judd Visits DC; Senate Run A Foregone Conclusion?!

Filed under: PolitikBarack ObamaAshley Judd

ashley judd visits washington senate run kentucky karl rove divorce derby day

Missus Judd went to Washington!

And we don't mean the Double Jeopardy star stopped by Denzel's place for lemonade and chocolate-covered pretzels!

Ashley Judd trekked on over to our nation's capital this week and met with folks from the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee!

Right now the 44-year-old actress is merely dangling her feet in the water, testing the temperature for a possible Senate run in Kentucky!

Inside sources say she is "leaning toward" diving in head first and plans to decide by Derby Day.

But at what price?

Political waters are more shark-infested than most! Karl Rove and his cronies already began their smear campaign against the sensational starlet because she strongly supported President Obama during his re-election!

Can the Hollywood hottie handle a messy divorce and a political run at the same time?!

We cannot wait to find out!

Illinois Senate Passes Same Sex Marriage Bill!

crowd in support of gay marriage

We're guessing some couples in Illinois are going to have to turn those candlelight dinner plans into engagement parties tonight!

Just in time for Valentine's Day, the Illinois Senate just passed a bill to legalize same-sex marriage!

The bill passed 34-21 in the Senate and now must move to the House to be made fully legal.

This will make Illinois the tenth state to make gay marriage legal, but three more states are just behind.

Rhode Island, Delaware, and Hawaii have each introduced their own marriage equality acts into their legislatures.

Looks like 13 is going to be the lucky number for someone very soon!

Yay Land Of Lincoln!

But her potential opponent Mitch McConnell is treating her as a real threat, and he's called in the big guns- conservative strategist Karl Rove!

Ben Affleck's Sights Are Set On Running For Senate?

Do you like apples?!

The guy who played a statutory (anal) rapist in Mallrats might run for Senate! How do you like them apples?

Oscar-winning movie star Ben Affleck sat down with Bob Schieffer of Face the Nation recently to discuss his political aspirations.

Ch-ch-check out Bob grilling him on the likeliness of campaigning for John Kerry's potentially vacant spot in MA (above)!

Ben would neither confirm nor deny the rumors, but, between the politically-charged Argo and yesterday's testimony to Congress, it wouldn't surprise us!

Could the nation ever take the Gigli and Daredevil seriously enough to vote him into office?!

It wouldn't be unprecedented!

Arnold Schwarzenegger was The Terminator before he was the Governator! Former President Ronald Reagan was an outrageously popular movie actor too!

Ugh! We want need this to happen!

Jennifer Garner would be a PERFECT First Lady, LOLz!
