Most politicians go on listening tours to hear their constituents’ concerns and get input for voting on legislation or writing new laws.

But we’ve noticed that in U.S. Sen. John Hickenlooper’s limited interactions with the public — restricted mostly to the Front Range — he’s the one doing all the talking.

If he ever stops mansplaining long enough, maybe Hickenlooper’s staff can get in a word edgewise and remind him there is as much wisdom in listening as there is in speaking.

This explains why he’s always so out-of-touch with Coloradans.
