Charlie Rangel painted the town blue.

Charlie Rangel on the Sixteenth Street Mall

Denver, worked into a DNC lather, can’t get enough famous people.

Either that or longtime Democratic New York Representative Charlie Rangel’s blue suit was the cutting edge of fashion. Because Rangel was absolutely mobbed by reporters, photographers and all-around glad-handers on Monday around 2 p.m. as he strolled down the Sixteenth Street Mall near the Hard Rock Cafe, absorbing the sunshine and the love.

And although the pro-Hillary Clinton contingent had loudly made its way down the opposite side of the street just a few minutes earlier, Rangel – who actively backed Clinton and criticized Barack Obama through the primaries – wasn’t marching along. – Jonathan Shikes
