Well, given the emphasis among Democrats of identity politics and “intersectionality,” it’s a fair question.
Democratic Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper told Aliysn Camerota that he’s leaning toward running for president.
“Is it time to have somebody of color, and a woman, and somebody young, and somebody more establishment?” she wanted to know.
“I think that the Democrats across the country are going to help decide that,” Hickenlooper said. “I’m not sure it’s clear what is exactly needed. But I do know there are a lot of strong opinions.”
“As a white guy, are you trying to calculate whether or not this is the right time for you?” Camerota asked.
“Well, this is the time it’s worked out,” he said, noting that he is ending his term as governor, adding, I’m an entrepreneur, I’m a problem solver.” He’s also 66-years old, white, and relatively unknown.
Of course, he’s toast.
Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper on President Trump: “We’re seeing all kinds of evidence that the Trump presidency isn’t succeeding. It’s not taking America where it needs to go. It certainly isn’t fulfilling his promises to the rural parts of America.” pic.twitter.com/g4ibsk67qf— New Day (@NewDay) December 10, 2018
