That's the bait and switch you later price.

My subscription is $35/month. Maybe I have an enhanced thing or something.

He's a youngster, comapred to some. Biden and Sanders are 10 and 11 years older, respectively.

I know it would be a shallow voter who considers a candidate's last name to be a factor, but I'd at least nod at the possibility.
I agree that it would be an issue. People focus on all the wrong things (like pantsuits...)

I like him and would vote for him, but living in Denver during his administrations, I feel like I know him and can see past his quirks -- I don't know if the rest of the country will find that his folksy persona inspires confidence. I think to survive the process long enough for people to hear his message, he needs to finetune his image a bit: he needs media training (and lots of it) and some help in the wardrobe department.

It's funny that he has the folksy image. He grew up on the Main Line of Phila. Snooty, old money, that kind of thing there. Think Winthorp in "Trading Places."

Thanks, no problem accessing it. Very interesting article. Hickenlooper sounds like he has an appealing personality, as well as very helpful government experience. I have been impressed with him since I first saw him on TV a few years ago.

He looks like a geologist.

He does and that doesn’t help him. But Hickenlooper would be such a good President to heal the wounds of our nation inflicted by Trump.

Outside of the western region, he doesn't have much name recognition. Plus his image needs worked on ALOT, looks too much like a bookworm. That's not bad, but needs more mainstream appeal. With him being a geologist, it's probably hard to break it.
