Schultz for President?

I don't agree with all his proposed policies but, he is credible and should be respected running as an Independent.

 

Could not believe some of the questions on CBS: "You are Jewish?", "Will you be on all 50 States ballots? "Will cost you a lot of money."

 

It should be obvious to everyone by now that the press is entirely a Democrat machine. They will start demonizing and discrediting this guy even if many of his policies would be nearly identical to those proposed by a Democrat.

I don't disagree however ask yourself this question, why are Democrats not trying to entice him to be one of their star candidates instead of demonizing him?

 

Reading some of the commentaries from Democrats today, there seems to be no comprehension that what is needed to beat Donald Trump IMO is to have a smart, rational individual who is likely to steal from moderate Republicans vs some of the extreme left candidates which they seem to favour such as Elizabeth Warren.

I believe that Schultz running on a Democratic Party platform would pot. draw support  from both the business community as well as from progressive groups within the party. It is exactly the kind of candidate the Dems should be considering.

 

Then again, it’s a whole lot easier to float the idea of a candidacy, then to follow through with the grind <g>.

Well, in my view, it's because the base has shifted too far to the left and they don't believe he represents the majority views of the party.  And they may be right.  Personally I'd like to see him swallow his pride, run as a democrat, and see if he can galvanize centrist democrats enough to at a minimum reframe the narrative and drive the party back towards the center, even if he isn't electable. Call it the inverse Bernie effect. Folks in the business will decry the destabilizing effects of a polarized primary, but at the end of the day, the democrats are far more united by a desire to unseat Trump than by any specific set of policies. And who knows, maybe we'll find out democrats aren't actually as far to the left as we think - after all, twitter and cable news is not reality

And that is really a problem for them IMO in terms of presenting a suitable alternative.

 

They should focus instead on what the majority of people want and not pleasing some desire or set political agenda. Or trying to put in flame half to 3/4 of the country in order to reach their extreme agenda.

 

Isn't clear yet why Trump won in 2016?

 

My view: People didn't like Hillary, didn't want a 2nd Clinton and felt that this guy cared much more about their needs with feasible solutions.
