Lovely Inaugural For Hickenlooper

Mrs. Hound and I just returned from Governor John Hickenkooper’s Inaugural Dinner event.  This is the first inaugural event we have been to, and it was really special.  In keeping with his personality, it was a BBQ/party instead of a formal dinner. 

The best part, other than the party (and CO beers in abundance, mmmm), was having four prior Colorado Governors on stage toasting the new one and providing mostly silly advice.  In my view, the perpetual peaceful transfer of power between parties is one of, if not the most, fundamental and important aspects of our democracy.    

The ceremony party  was also refreshingly non-partisan, non-political, and positive.  I hoped and expected as much from our new Governor, but it was still very nice.  Anyway, congratulations Governor Hickenlooper.
