Hickenlooper has a point
Like you, I'm having a hard time following the Democratic candidates running for President, from Beto to Bernie!
It seems like all they do is make statements to appeal to the left-wing crowds showing up at their rallies. My God, you can't even get a Democrat willing to say abortion in the eighth month is more than a talking point about reproductive rights. These people are automatic responses to any question that comes their way.
I've asked myself a few times: will any one of these guys and gals ever say something politically incorrect?
My answer came in the name of Governor John Hickenlooper. He may have said the unthinkable:
Asked by Dana Bash if he would vow to put a woman on his presidential ticket, John Hickenlooper replied, “Of course,” and then said, “How come we’re not asking, more often, the women, ‘Would you be willing to put a man on the ticket?’”
The governor has a good point.
I would advise the governor to go farther. He should ask: why aren't we focusing on nominating a ticket that can win 270 electoral votes rather than just looking to check off boxes on an identity politics checklist?
I plan to vote for President Trump. On the one hand, I want the Democrats to keep going lefty crazy. On the other hand, our democracy depends on two serious parties that can discuss real-world solutions to our complicated problems.
Maybe Governor Hickenlooper is a ray of hope!
