Hickenlooper thinks women candidates should be asked if they would put a man on the ticket

Former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper introduced himself to most of America last night at a CNN town hall event hosted by Dana Bash. Like the other Democratic candidates running for President, he addressed climate change, health care, gun violence and the rise of white nationalism in the United States.

When asked about putting a woman on the ticket, he responded “Of course,” and then flipped it around to a surprising take, saying “How come we’re not asking, more often, the women, ‘Would you be willing to put a man on the ticket?’”

Hickenlooper talked about reaching across the aisle to worth with Republicans and said we have a national crisis of division.

He’s also looking forward to whatever nickname President Trump decides to give him during the debates.

Hickenlooper told the audience he is against the death penalty because “it makes no sense.”

And when asked about a thirty-year old drunk driving arrest, said he was ashamed.

And even though marijuana is legal in the state of Colorado, Hickenlooper says he would not ask the federal government to legalize it.
