Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz told CBS News' "60 Minutes" Sunday that he is "seriously thinking" of making a run for the White House in 2020 as a "centrist independent," decrying what he called "revenge politics" by both mainstream political parties.
"We're living at a most fragile time, not only the fact that this president is not qualified to be the president, but the fact that both parties are consistently not doing what's necessary on behalf of the American people," said Schultz, who specifically cited the spiraling national debt as "a reckless example, not only of Republicans, but of Democrats, as well, as a reckless failure of their constitutional responsibility."
Yes a former Democrat running as an independent with money as no option is a excellent idea. That would likely workout like it did for Bush 41 when Perot ran as an independent. Actually he is the most reasonable sounding person that is considering running against Trump so far. Who knows maybe he would do well.
