Nice to be back in the Mile-High City. Beautiful! Flyin’ in from ALASKA, over snow-capped hills (think you call mountains)! Stepped off the plane reminded Todd “don’t inhale!” So, the President was here last week, gettin’ his Rocky Mt. High on.
John Hickenlooper had a chance to bring a breath of fresh air to the governor’s office. Imminently likable and with a charmed political career, he could have been the rare maverick moderate Democrat – strong enough and bold enough to be a governor for all Colorado. He could have been the adult in the room when liberal legislators ran amok on the lunatic fringe.
