We'd love to show you what Democratic gubernatorial candidate John Hickenlooper said about his jobs plan for Colorado. Oh wait, we can't. His campaign wouldn't let us videotape his announcement in Commerce City this morning.

The event was for "credentialed press," I was told, and that WhoSaidYouSaid doesn't qualify. Could it because I'm a Republican with a video blog?

Yet, the Denver mayor who would be governor of ALL Coloradans claims he's "non-partisan."

"Someone asked me, 'If you're so non-partisan, how many Republicans have you appointed to senior positions?' I said I had no idea,'" Hickenlooper said, according to The Colorado Independent. "I never discuss politics. When we are trying to find solutions and bring people together, we don't discuss politics. Then my chief of staff, Roxanne White, she pipes in and goes 'I'm a Republican.' No one knew.'"
