Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper is rumored to be on Hillary's short list for VP and today he talks about his unconventional path to political office, his success as a brewmaster, and how he sees his state as a microcosm for America. He also discusses Colorado as a test case for marijuana legalization and bridging the gap between environmentalists and the energy industry. Plus Governor Hickenlooper talks about drinking frack fluid, nude photography, what makes a good beer, and why he once took his mother to see the X-rated movie "Deep Throat."
