    Former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper launches campaign for Senate

    He's way ahead of Gardner in the polls. He was way ahead when he still had his Presidential campaign. Will this be a Dem pickup?

    Sadly, he was my #1 choice for POTUS. I would have loved to cast a vote for him in 2020.

    It's disgraceful. I'm going to maybe and I'm looking at it very seriously. We're doing some other things that you probably noticed like some of the very important things that we're doing now. But we're looking at it very seriously because you can't do that. - President Donald J. Trump

    Fruitloops didn't stand a chance for POTUS. He'd be better off in the Senate anyway.

    That guy is actually very measured with a good head on his shoulders. We haven't heard the last of him. I think he threw his hat in the ring at the wrong time.

    He’ll be a great senator, and maybe president later.
    if we had confidence after a thorough investigation of the facts that the President clearly did not commit obstruction of justice, we would so state. Based on the facts and the applicable legal standards, we are unable to reach that judgment.

    This. If he has a few successful years in the Senate he will be better viewed for POTUS. Depending on who wins next year, he may be viable for 2024.

    He should've just ran for senate, anyways.

    It all depends on the climate, t. Right now it seems to be the time for extremists, both sides. As it stands, I'll go 3rd again. This is too ugly for me, and if this is what we want and support, we deserve what's coming.

    Hickenlooper was the most moderate of the bunch, which is why he appealed to me.

    Cindy McCain wrote a piece published by Wapo this morning about her husband. He was a partisan to his core, but he also knew that compromise was critical, and being in the middle was best for the country. Hickenlooper was like McCain in that regard.

    I don't want extremists, and I don't want anyone who won't compromise. The best Presidents of my lifetime were the ones who would work across the aisle.

    Flipping the McConnell Senate in 2020 is crucial. Colorado's Gardner is one of the many vulnerable GOP Senators.


    We live in an extractive state, in which a ruling elite extracts wealth from the rest.

    I find this sort of commentary hilarious, and it's based in the moronic notion that the US exists in a vaccuum.

    For example; MFA is not radical, at all. Only in this country is it considered irrational. Seeking viable alternatives to finite fossil fuels is not radical. Investing in the future of a greater america via public funded secondary education is not radical. In fact, most proposals are only labeled radical by two types of people; centre right people, and right people. That's it.

    Why is it, for example, 60 cents on every dolllar taken in taxes by the government has to go to the military? As an american, I find it extremely disturbing that advances that would promote and enhance the common good for all of our people are seen as radical, but our extreme military budget and investment in inhumane, extremist wars, are something we just sweep under the rug.
