    Howard Schultz

    A real possibility, or mere egotistical musings?

    A spoiler threat to the Democrats, or a beneficial influence against spinning out of reality’s orbit into the utopian zone?

    A test of whether the electorate cares about deficits?

    It sure exposes what the major parties are afraid of :-)

    Nor the politicians as we learned a little over a year ago. At least as long as the money is going to super rich people and corporations.

    I'd rather Bloomberg than Schultz if you're looking at the Businessman-Turned-Politician type.

    We’ve already tried the businessman turned politician type as president. Hopefully we as a nation are smart enough to fall for that again.

    I would rather neither. But at least Bloomberg would tell you what he is really thinking even if it is crazy whereas Schultz would blow sunshine up your butt while he is spitting in your cappuccino.

    I heard Bloomberg is declining to run because the Secret Service was going to assign him the code name “Big Gulp”.

    Still wondering what Jane and Bae think of Inslee throwing his hat in.
    My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already!

    Sorry, I hadn't been following this thread. Howard Schultz is a complete non-starter in my book; right up there with Mitt "47%" Romney.

    I think Inslee is a fine man, a dedicated bureaucrat, an adequate administrator, etc. I've always voted for him. I'd probably like to have a kombucha with him. If somehow he were nominated, I'd vote for him again. But I'd rather not.

    I want the next generation to take the reins. (I might make an exception for Elizabeth Warren.) Kamala Harris, Stacey Abrams, Beto O'Rourke, Maisie Hirono, Ted Lieu...are among my favorites. I'm tired of old white men who are comfortable in their thrall to Big Money donors, cutting taxes (again?) and refusing to make waves. Really, I'm ready for a revolution.
