John Hickenlooper becomes Colorado's new governor tomorrow (Jan. 11, 2011). His inauguration got us thinking about past leaders in the state. We visit the governor's residence in Capitol Hill. There at the bar on the first floor you'll find a wall of photographs of past governors. Ryan Warner speaks with Steve Leonard about the stories behind these photographs. He chairs the history department at Metro State in Denver.
