And Monday's hot political story is...

Posted By on Mon, Jan 11, 2010 at 9:04 PM

No, Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper still hasn't announced whether he'll replace Gov. Bill Ritter as the Democrats' candidate for governor in the 2010 election.

And no, it wasn't U.S. Rep. Ed Perlmutter, D-Aurora, informing the media that he definitely would not be turning his attention from Congress to run for governor.

At a time when the Democrats would figure to be dominating the state news, the big headline Monday turns out to be ... Republican gubernatorial candidate Scott McInnis shaving his mustache?

That's actually the truth. McInnis, because he had lost a friendly wager with his son when the Denver Broncos failed to make the playoffs, revealed that over the weekend he had shaved the mustache that had defined his physical appearance since 1987.

And if that truly was Colorado's biggest political news Monday, then the Democrats have some work to do. Meanwhile, various Denver-area media sources are saying that indications suggest Hickenlooper is on the verge of confirming he will indeed take Ritter's place atop the state ticket.

But the longer he goes without making that leap, the more you have to wonder if he really will.
