Is John Hickenlooper too normal to be president? POLITICO's Off Message

    • Politics

In a crowded field of Democratic presidential contenders, former
Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper makes an impression on voters as a
genuine candidate, even if he's a bit quirky. He colors outside the
lines of the political conventions -- a geologist by training, a brewer
and restauranteur by profession, and a politician only later in life. 

In this episode, he talks about his temper as a child, his pragmatic
approach to politics, and how he's managed to succeed in a people-driven
business despite a condition commonly known as face blindness, a
condition that keeps him from recognizing familiar faces.
