Howard Schultz Adviser Bill Burton: If He Runs, It Would Be ‘a More Serious Effort’ Than Jill Stein’s
BURTON: "Couple of things. Number one, Howard Schultz is not Jill Stein. Jill Stein was in that race because she thought that the two parties were too close together, the two candidates were too close together. What Howard Schultz thinks is the polar opposites of the parties are so far apart, but the American people are close together. And maybe what we need is a choice for the American people to choose something different, a different path, a different kinds of outcome, a different kind of politics in America. And secondly, I just think that — first of all, he hasn’t made the decision to run, but if he did, I think we can agree it would be a more serious effort than what Jill Stein put together."
