I'll be very interested to see how his platforms emerge. I also want to see how the next year of Trump's presidency go. I agree that Jews in positions of political power can be problematic.

All that said, I will always vote for someone who's been responsible for making payroll over someone who hasn't.

The only place I heard people not voting for him because he is Jewish is on a frum website.
That's pretty sad.

Why? It's not bigotry. It's baggage we carry from having had Jewish leaders whose loyalty to the Jewish people was turned against them.
Frum people are hyper aware of our own history.

Not really. There's an inyan that Jews shouldn't insert themselves in a prominent fashion into the affairs of the countries in which they live in galus. Perhaps someone else knows the sources for this -- I'm not that learned. It's a pretty mainstream idea, though, and gedolim are often consulted when a frum Jew is deciding whether to accept some kind of high-profile role in the government.

This is deep.

LW is furiously attacking Schultz.

RW embraces Schultz to own the libs.

Who will it end up hurting more?

Yes, he is definitely running well ahead of Democrats among conservative-leaning voters.

Now tell me if that hurts or helps Trump.

I agree with this guy: If you're a democrat and worried about Howard Schultz, you don't believe in democracy.

I know the Republicans are filled with glee at the prospect of a few dozens candidates, with the Dems going through the same hassle of two-tiered debates, etc. But it is early enough that this is the time for exploration. Let Schultz explore. It doesn't mean he'll be a spoiler. To me, it sounds like he belongs with the substantial grown ups anyway.
