Politics is Hollywood for Ugly People

I’m at the Venture Capital in the Rockies Conference today.  Denver’s awesome Mayor – John Hickenlooper – is the breakfast speaker.  It’s 8:25 and I’ve already heard the quote of the day.  John – who is an entrepreneur – is talking about his entree into politics.  When he mentioned to his brother that he was thinking about running for mayor, his brother responded, “C’mon John, politics is hollywood for ugly people.”  Perfect.
