SOME NEWS -- We asked COLORADO GOV. JOHN HICKENLOOPER during a Playbook Exchange event here if he would run for the White House on a ticket with OHIO REPUBLICAN GOV. JOHN KASICH. He said: I dont think Kasich would ever do that You never know. You never say. Hes an easy person to work with. Hes strongly opinionated. And quick to his opinion. But he also knows as much about the federal budget, and understands health care at a deeper level than almost any other governor I know. ... I dont think its in the cards. But I do like the idea of working with him in some context at some point. The governor told us Trump has told him he's taken notice of his appearances on TV.
-- WILL HICKENLOOPER RUN AGAINST SEN. CORY GARDNER (R-COLO.)? He said he was disappointed with Gardners stance on health care. Thats not the Cory Gardner I thought I knew. Hickenlooper said he is not ruling anything out. When asked what he thinks about when he considers running for a seat in Washington, Hickenlooper joked, I think why me? What did I do to hurt you?

Our rule for 2020, the kookier the Dem running the better.
Not much depth for the dimoKKKRATS. It is very thin.
I think he would be a good candidate, but Hickenlooper is way too normal, white and male to be nominated.
Chickenpooper seems to have forgotten that he’s 1) white 2) male 3) straight 4) a natural born citizen
He’s not qualified to be the Democrat candidate.
Demo don’t have a deep bench.
They’ve got a dunce chair.
We NEED Hickenlooper in the race! Even though he has no chance of being the Dem standard-bearer, since he is a man and a white one at that, we still need him to muck up their already swampy water.
Like the commercial once said, “With a name like Smucker’s, it’s got to be good!”
ChickenPooper has ZERO chance of winning.
His actual name is Hickenpooper.
That's why any Dem who runs is a 2nd-tier candidate hoping for a miracle.
The real Dem candidates are waiting for '24.
He wouldn’t get past the puns on his name.
George H Bush.
Didn’t this guy just barely win reelection last time?
You forgot the “C.”
How long have you been governor of my native state? And you want me to wish you well?
K-sick/Chickenpooper the Low-T Twins for 2020
He’s still alive? Is his horse Grey Eagle still alive too? They have to be over 150 years old each.
Don’t underestimate this guy. I’ve worked with him, on a longstanding charity project. He’s a sneaky good retail politician and very dangerous. He comes off as mild and moderate, but he’s pretty far left, not as bad as some but bad enough. He would be a foreign policy disaster, like most of today’s Democrats.
He knows how to come off as Mr. Normal Nice Guy with no sharp elbows.
He can win.
I got to see President Nixon work as a tyke as my Uncle was in Bebe Rebozo’s circle in South Florida. Nixon was a much better retail politician than he’s given credit for.
Dems don’t want a “no sharp elbows” candidate, particularly against Trump. They are going to want someone as nasty as a swim through a sewer.
