Key Words: Why did Denver brewer and presidential candidate Hickenlooper shy away from this ‘C word’?

Before he ran the state of Colorado, John Hickenlooper, worth an estimated $10 million by some measures, created a Denver brewery and restaurant empire, anchoring a neighborhood revitalization by his own telling.

But in an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” program Friday, a few days after Hickenlooper officially launched his 2020 presidential run in a crowded Democratic field, the former mayor of Denver and governor of Colorado declined to classify himself as a “capitalist” — or, at most, reluctantly accepted the descriptor.

It took the program’s Joe Scarborough about four tries to get the candidate to accept what sounded like a dirty word to describe his business past, if his hesitation was any indication.
