For some reason, the idea of former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz running for president struck me as … well … indescribably boring. So much so that I paid almost zero attention to the stories floating around about the possibility.

But I’ll read pretty much anything Nick Gillespie cares to write (even when, as is often the case, I stridently disagree with him), and his piece today in Reason┬ámakes a decent case that there may be some “there” there worth checking out.

No, I don’t plan to vote for Schultz. But if he’s really pursuing the kind of “public conversation” that Gillespie thinks he’s pursuing, I’ll root for him to be successful in that pursuit.
