Will Jeb Bush Run in 2016?

Frank Bruni: "I'm told by people in the know that while Bush is definitely mulling a candidacy, there's only a 20 to 30 percent chance that he'll press the button. Many factors play into that decision: his family's privacy; the reality that he and Rubio, his onetime political mentee, can't both run; the nascent political career of his son George P. Bush, who might be better served by a longer Bush lull."

"AND then there's the question that every presidential contender about to submit to a brutal and brutalizing process must ask: is a burning desire for the White House really present? The fabled fire in the belly? It certainly seems to rage inside Paul, Cruz, Christie. They're infernos of untempered ambition."
