Schultz Would Quit Race If Democrats Nominate a Centrist


February 15, 2019 at 12:06 pm EST By Taegan Goddard

Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz said that he “would be willing to abandon his presidential ambitions midstream if Democrats nominate a centrist who makes it too difficult for him to win as an independent candidate,” the Washington Post reports.

5. I'll order one of his coffees if he slashes prices by 67%.

I love how CEOs think they own the world and can call the shots wherever they like.

7. He should stay in a little longer. Each day reveals he is a bigger dickhead than the day before.

10. Howard Schultz is seeking centrists? They're Already There At The National Level

Last edited Fri Feb 15, 2019, 08:55 PM - Edit history (1)

With the exception of certain issues like gay rights and environmental protection, the national Democratic Party has been pretty centrist for decades. Even those of us who thought that many of Tricky Dick Nixon’s social and economic policies weren’t all that bad have spurned Club Pachyderm and have joined Team Donkey. The “centrists” Schultz is looking for are Reaganite-lite, a crowd that was proved to be few on the ground in the 2016 elections.
