"That's the end. Howard Schultz did not put forward one policy he would enact as president." - Paul Constant wraps up a live-tweet of billionaire Howard Schultz's latest not-quite-presidential-campaign event. The not-campaign has been marked with a distinct lack of substance, mostly consisting of Schultz criticizing popular Democratic policies and espousing a bland socially liberal/financially conservative centrism that's been described as "The Empty Quadrant of American Politics". So who is this for and who is encouraging this? Probably the media, and their ongoing infatuation with false middle ground narratives.
