Denver Mayor Nixes Bid for Governor
Denver's wildly popular Mayor, John Hickenlooper, named by Time Magazine as one of the five most influential mayors in the country, just held a news conference to announce his final decision on whether he will run for Governor. The answer is "no." He loves being Mayor and wants to complete the programs he has in the works.
My take: Hick made the correct decision, and one that will increase his political capital by leaps and bounds. He demonstrated that he puts the welfare of the people who elected him above personal ambition. How rare is that? He positively glowed with positive energy during the announcement.
I think we'll be calling him Senator Hickenlooper in a few years.
