    Prior to its inevitable endorsement of the incumbent Democrat, the Denver Post produced profiles of Bob Beauprez and John Hickenlooper. The stories were interesting from start to finish. It was fascinating to read what was included, and what was not. Bob’s started with his faith in G-d. Hick’s started with his new stray dog. Hick’s profile ended with him attending the book signing event of his estranged wife, Helen Thorpe. Bob’s profile ended with words of love and devotion from his biggest fan, his wife Claudia Beauprez. Bob is described as a devout Catholic with limited exceptions regarding abortion. Neither...

Against an exterior backdrop of handsome rustic paneling, green canopy and a stunning mural of Venice, complete with images of St. Mark's Cathedral and gondolas afloat on lazy Mediterranean waters, Paret dished on the passing of an era.

He says he doesn't necessarily identify with either major political party, and he skews libertarian. The main throughline in his politics is defending...
