It’s hard to guess how the large and growing Democratic field for president in 2020 is going to shake out. But here in Colorado we’d like to put in a good word for our former governor John Hickenlooper. He’s a good guy, a nice guy, a moderate guy. And he managed to get a lot done even when the legislature was starkly divided along party lines.
If you non-Coloradans remember him at all, it’s probably because of the funny name. Or maybe you saw one of his quirky commercials. Like his 2010 ad where he showered, fully clothed, to wash off all the negative campaigning.
The “serious” announcement ad below is probably too long. The shower ad is probably not the type needed for a presidential campaign. But moderation and common sense? We could use a lot more of those.
