Cue the 2016 speculations: The former president and CEO of Ford Motors isn't ruling out a presidential run.

Speaking at a radio industry conference in Indianapolis Thursday, former Ford head Alan Mulally kept his options open when he was asked whether he'd consider running for president, ABC News reported.
"I really think it’s important that we all pull together … around a compelling vision for our country and a comprehensive strategy to do it and work together,” Mulally said.
“With all of you as my witness, he did not say no,” ABC's Dan Harris said to the audience.
If Mulally runs, would he run as a Democrat or a Republican?
That's hard to say.
According to the political contribution tracker on opensecrets.org, Mulally has donated thousands of dollars over the years to both Democratic and Republican political candidates.
Business leaders often tilt conservative and Mulally is no stranger to market-driven capitalism, but Mulally has also praised the government bailouts of the auto industry.
The 68-year-old business legend remains, it seems, an enigmatic presidential possibility — and not much more at this point.
