To me it looks more like an Oxalis than clover. I don't know the best way to eliminate it.

Perhaps Common Yellow Wood Sorrel (Oxalis dillenii), a native Colorado wildflower? If it is native, perhaps just embrace it and let it colonize, especially if it mixes well with your cultivated flowers. I do that with a couple natives in my area - false lily of the valley and a diminutive little bleeding heart. Both mingle well with my other plants.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.

Yes, Oxalis ... there are a few "weedy" varieties.

Common Yellow Wood Sorrel (Oxalis dillenii)
Creeping Wood Sorrel (Oxalis corniculata)
