Starbucks makes political push on fiscal cliff

New York (CNNMoney) - Starbucks is launching a political campaign this week it hopes will get the attention of Washington policymakers who have been unable to reach a deal to avert the fiscal cliff.

In a letter to Starbucks employees made public on Wednesday, Chief Executive Howard Schultz asked employees at its approximately 120 D.C.-area stores to write "Come Together" on coffee cups when serving customers on Thursday and Friday.

    Great idea because the uninformed in this country (and there are sooooo many) drink lots of coffee but don't watch the news or read a newspaper for news.

    Anyone remember when "Come Together" bumper stickers were popular in the late '60s and early '70s?
