Gasparino: Howard Schultz Tying Potential Presidential Run to Success/Failure of Joe Biden

‘If Joe Biden wins, wins as a moderate … the chances of [Schultz] running, I’m told by people with direct knowledge of the matter, are very low’

EXCERPT:

GASPARINO: "One of the sort of factors, I would say it is one of the leading factors, and I know you have Mr. Schultz’s spokeswoman on after this, you can bounce it off of her, but I’m getting this from people close to the campaign. One of the factors is Joe Biden and Joe Biden’s potential success or failure. That is key, that is one of the main — you never say it is the only reason — and she will say this, I guarantee it — but it is one of the major reasons. If Joe Biden wins, if he wins as a moderate Progressive that is pro-business, sort of along the lines what Mr. Schultz is, by the way, the chances of him running, I’m told by people with direct knowledge of the matter, are very low. If he loses, and you have Bernie or Elizabeth Warren, the socialists take over — and by the way, they’re at the top of the ticket right now, you have everybody else, you got her, Biden and those two — if those two run, the chances of him running as independent for that lane, that Progressive, pro-business, moderate lane, is much higher from what I understand."
