Mark in LA:

All else being equal ( I know nothing about any of these candidates), the august body needs a “Senator Hickenlooper”, especially now that is has been so cruelly deprived of a "Senator Blagojevich."

Either Hickenlooper (well liked mayor of Denver) or Romanoff (well liked former Speaker of the House) could win statewide in two years. The other five might have problems in a state that was bright red just a few years ago. In the cases of Perlmutter and John Salazar, Dems would give up US House seats in swing districts.
