I agree, I don't think he'd be very popular.  Nobody from Seattle will vote for him after he bought the Sonics (NBA team, basketball, round ball sport) and sold them off to Oklahoma City.  He would have an opportunity for a good slogan--"Schultz in VentiVenti".

I heard he actually died in '94 but it took three years for anyone to notice.


I remember him saying he was outside a big hotel in DC once, and an empty limousine pulled up and Al Gore got out of it.

Damn, opportunity missed. He'd certainly have the barista vote. Maybe that's why I never go to Starbucks, irritated by the smug correction:

"I'll take the largest skim latte."
"Okay, Venti nonfat latte."

--Moderator:  "Alright then, Mr. Shultzc, our first topic is..."

My kids listen/watch some comedy thing where all the bits are around 7 seconds. The above reminds me of one.

"Hi, my name's Michael with a B and I am deathly afraid of insects."
"Uhm, where's the B?"
"There's a bee ?!?!"...

I voted left wing, but TBH I would prefer that a centrist run just because I think someone with my views could lose. The majority of people who could vote are left of center, but the majority of people who do vote not so much. The Trump faithful will go to the polls, boomers will vote and the youth vote is the sleeping giant. They are doing better but still have a long way to go to approach the % turnout of older people. If the kids turned out like that it would be the end of today's GOP.

totally feel the bern--not sure ill vote for him--

but his speech yesterday was awesome--

you know, the one about how we need to accept that discussion of Israeli policies in the middle east, where policies are identified as questionable or bad, does not make that discussion or its participants anti-semitic................

seems simple to me--gotta hand it to the bern for being up front and crystal clear on this.................

Anti Zionist is not anti Semitic. That is a typical blurring of the lines.

None of the above. I'm hoping Trumps croaks from erotic asphyxiation while in bed with Mike Pence just before 2020.

I'd vote for a centrist republican.
