Jeb Bush: How you can tell I'm not running

The Denver Post on Jeb Bush's weekend address at the Denver Convention Center -- one in which he hit Arizona's immigration law again, and mused on the ramifications of it for a potential run for President.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush said if his children walked the streets of Phoenix they might look awfully suspicious to police. His wife, Columba, is from Mexico.

.... While he is sympathetic to the plight of Arizona officials forced to deal with all the problems linked to a porous frontier, he believes there are solutions other than a law criminalizing illegal immigrants, he said.

"It's the wrong approach," he said. "The net result is not much has been done."

As for the politics of the issue:

....[Bush] quipped that it was obvious he was not running for office, noting that his views differed from those of most of his Republican colleagues.
