Hickenlooper's Wife Offered to Stay if he Ran for President

Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper (D) tells Frank Bruni about his amicable separation from his wife, Helen Thorpe, and her "amazingly generous" offer.

Hickenlooper volunteered that when they discussed separating, she had told him: "If you want to run for president, I'm in. We'll stay married. I'll figure it out and I'll be fine."

"He turned down that offer, he told me, because he didn't want to prolong her unhappiness and had 'pretty much made my mind up to focus on Colorado and not to spend time imagining any national campaigns.' There are few signs that he's gearing up for one."
