There was some speculation that former Colombian president Álvaro Uribe might pursue the mayoralty of  Bogotá, the Colombian capital.  The position is the most significant electoral position in Colombia after the presidency, so the speculation was not as absurd as it may sound to American ears, but it did always strike me as something of a longshot.

Still, Uribe put the speculation to rest, as reported by El Tiempo:  Uribe le aclaró a ‘la U’ que no será candidato a la Alcaldía de Bogotá.
