When former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz first declared that he was entertaining the idea of running for president, he was ubiquitous on the political scene, sitting for interviews with major outlets, appearing at buzzy conferences, and making various stops for a book tour across the country in which he’d persistently tease his White House ambitions.

But in the past two weeks, Schultz has largely disappeared, leaving the impression that the presidential campaign he was flirting with won’t actually come to fruition.

His aides say that’s not the case. Bill Burton, a senior Schultz adviser, said that Schultz was still considering a bid and remained committed to the timeframe he had offered for a formal decision, which should come sometime “in the late spring or early summer.”

“It is a long time until election day 2020 and there are a lot of that inputs that Howard it is going to consider before he makes his decision,” Burton said.

Yeah, I call bullshit.

Schultz has pulled off the almost impossible in that out of a crowded field, which now numbers in the twenties, he has managed to consistently be the one who can be counted on to stick his foot in his mouth virtually every time he walks into the spotlight. 

I don’t know who convinced this guy he should run for the White House, but they are either playing a monstrous practical joke on him or they just wanted to get a quick payday before his non-campaign imploded in on itself. 

I think the latter has already happened and he was so inconsequential that hardly anybody noticed.

    OT/ “The Coles,” Dick wrote, “….have used their abilities and positions over the years to advance the radical socialist ideas that… have over the generations and around the world created unimaginable and unnecessary suffering, misery and death…”

    This was surprising, because I have never been a big fan of “suffering, misery and death.”

    Admirers of the Kochs might wish our Constitution was of, by and for the billionaires, but wiser minds were at the drafting table. The governor’s amendments would violate both the spirit and the letter of the Alaska Constitution, a document that has been one of the great blessings of our history, no matter what his constitutional adviser might say.
