Despite Hillary Clinton’s strong stance against the Pumpkin Spice Latte, Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz has announced that he’s supporting her in the election. “I think it’s obvious Hillary Clinton needs to be the next president,” he told CNN’s Poppy Harlow. But he also hinted at his own political ambition, adding, “I would never say never, but this is not the right time.” No word on how the Democratic nominee feels about Schultz’s aggressively early rollout of fall beverages, but she likely supports his decision to give baristas more “consistent and reliable” work schedules.
