Gov. Hickenlooper on running with Hillary Clinton: You'd be a fool not to consider it very strongly

DENVER -

Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper has been the focus of recent political chatter about taking on the role of Hillary Clinton’s running mate on the Democratic ticket.

Denver7 reporter Marc Stewart spoke with the governor about his future ambitions.

"I know you've not been approached by the Clinton campaign, but you're not ruling this out either?” asked Stewart. “No, obviously if someone feels you would add great value to service to your country, I think you'd be a fool not to consider it very strongly," said Hickenlooper.              

"I'm asking you this question with utmost respect: Do you think that you would be qualified to be Vice President?” asked Stewart.

“That depends on what your range of assessment is right? So my international experience is economic development, mostly businesses, trying to figure out ways to further relationships," said Hickenlooper.  “Do I have the same international experience as somebody who’s been on the foreign relations committee of the U.S. Senate? Probably not? There's all different metrics by which you look at that,” he said.

Last month, a blog from TheHill.com listed Hickenlooper as a possible contender.
