WASHINGTON -- Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz endorsed Hillary Clinton for president on Wednesday, leaving the door open for a future run of his own in an interview with CNN.

"I think it's obvious Hillary Clinton needs to be the next president," Schultz said. "I think this election cycle has unfortunately created such divisiveness and vitriolic behavior, the likes of which we've never seen before."

The Jewish CEO, with an estimated net worth of $3 billion, endorsed Barack Obama for president in 2008 and 2012. He has exclusively donated to Democrats.

Schultz has long hinted at an interest in political life, and did so once again on Wednesday: "I'm a young man," said the 63 year-old, asked whether he would ever consider running for president himself.
