CNN Panel Dings Former Governor For Saying He Doesn’t Care Whether His Running Mate is Female: ‘That’s Not the World We Live In’

Article here. Excerpt:

'Former Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper‘s comments about female running mates didn’t go over well with a CNN panel Friday, as the 2020 presidential hopeful was criticized for saying the gender of running mates shouldn’t be the deciding factor for whether they are chosen by a candidate.

“Governor, some of your male competitors have vowed to put a woman on the ticket. Yes or no, would you do the same?” he was asked at last night’s CNN town hall, to which he responded with his own question: “How comes we’re not asking more often the women, would you be willing to put a man on the ticket?”

CNN’s John King, attempting to make sense of Hickenlooper’s comments, suggested the candidate’s view of the world may be too narrow-minded and unrealistic.'

Hickenlooper has largely been a decent and centrist governor of Colorado. Don't agree with him all the time, but he's done a good job overall.

I'm glad to see him have the cogones to question the standard question: will you make a woman your running mate? Why not ask women if they'll make a man their running mate. Seems he might have a sense of fairness about gender issues. And we all know how wrong that is in today's feminist world.
