An aircraft bound for Boeing Field obscures the gleaming sun, flying so low that it feels as though it might land in Harper's salsa.Harper stops to contemplate whether he could throw his support behind a potential run for the White House by Howard Schultz, owner of Starbucks, a Seattle institution.,Schultz completed this transaction 12 years ago, but in Seattle, where bitter Sonics fans still abound, it might as well have been yesterday.How a Schultz presidential candidacy, presumably taking flight with a bid for the Democratic nomination, would play nationally is an open question.,"He sold Seattle down the river, knowing full well what Bennett was going to do," adds Dotzauer, refusing to believe Schultz's claim that he thought Bennett would try to keep the team in Seattle.,The Schultz family left the latter neighborhood after a private driveway they built through a public park didnt go over too well with their neighbors.The office housing Jason Reids and Adam Browns film production companies sits hard by a set of railroad tracks in SoDo, a heavily industrial neighborhood south of downtown Seattle.,There are similarities, to be sure: Both men were raised in New York City (Trump in an affluent Queens neighborhood, Schultz in public housing in Brooklyn), both are polarizing figures in the cities they now call home, both are wealthy businessmen, and should Schultz choose to run, he would have exactly the same amount of experience in public office as Trump had when he successfully ran: zero.But Kaushik thinks it's unfair to compare the two, noting, "Schultz, in his life and work, has shown a genuine belief in the importance of public service and the responsibilities that come with it in a way that Donald Trump absolutely has not.
