Schultz has plenty of time to jump in

So where is Howard Schultz?  Is he still running for president, or did he reconsider?  
According to the Daily Beast, Schultz is on the disabled list.  This is their report:  
Erin McPike, a spokesperson for Schultz, said there was a simple reason for these canceled events: he was “taking a break while he is recovering from back surgery.” That would place Schultz in some well-known company. Rick Perry was hobbled during his ill-fated 2012 campaign because of his own back ailments.
But Schultz has also dialed down the elements of his campaign prep that don’t actually require public appearances. He has not posted to Facebook or Instagram since April 30. His last missive was on how leaders make decisions “through the lens of personal beliefs” which included a photo of a chess board, a French press, a cup of coffee and a diary with the phrase “success is best when it’s shared” written in black sharpie marker.
Well, let’s give Schultz the benefit of the doubt,.  Maybe he is recovering or just staying low or both.
Nevertheless, Schultz is smart in staying in the background:
First, he is got plenty of time.  Let’s remember that Ross Perot did not announce until the first quarter of 1992.
Second, Howard Schultz will spend his own money and be on every state’s ballot quickly.  
Most important of all, Schultz has nothing to gain from jumping in too early.  He does not have a nomination to win or state parties to coordinate with.  He cuts a check and he is in!
My guess is that Schultz is waiting for the Democrats to blow up.  At that point, he will run as the real alternative to President Trump.  I would not be surprised if we see polls next spring with Trump and Schultz in the top two positions and a Democrat running behind.

Ray Hutchinson of Texas had quite a life

(My new American Thinker)

Ray Hutchinson was very well known in Texas for two reasons:

1) His wife is former Senator Kay Bailey Hutchinson; and,

2) He had quite a career, in the public and private sectors.
We're sorry to report that Mr Hutchinson died of heart complications.  He was 81.

Mr Hutchinson was one of those public figures who was in the middle of everything, from moving the Washington Senators to Dallas Ft Worth, to local land deals, and giving advice to US Presidents. 

His life was indeed incredible, as we saw in a local obituary:
"For more than 50 years Hutchison served as counsel to state and local governments and was regarded as a leading bond lawyer in the state of Texas, who worked on many of the most significant development projects in North Texas during this period.  “Ray was involved in virtually every major government development project in North Texas over the past five decades,” said Ben Brooks, head of Bracewell’s public finance practice and longtime friend of Hutchison.  Hutchison was key to the development of the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, Dallas Area Rapid Transit, the Upper Trinity Regional Water District, the AT&T Performing Arts Center, as well as numerous professional sports facilities built in North Texas during his career.He also led the negotiations to move the Washington Senators to Arlington to become the Texas Rangers and worked on the complex issues faced with building their stadium."
Mr Hutchinson was the kind of man who got things done.  He was not an ideologue or partisan kind of man.  He was obviously a conservative but understood that you had to compromise to get things done. 

By the way, Mr Hutchinson never compromised his ethics and that's another reason that he is remembered so well today.

RIP Mr Hutchinson.  We will miss your level headed approach to politics.
