Speculation over Microsoft Corp's succession plans refocused on internal choices on Wednesday, a day after the leading outside candidate, Ford Motor Co CEO Alan Mulally, took himself off the list of potential CEOs at the world's largest software maker. For months, Microsoft watchers had pegged Mulally as the odds-on bet to succeed Steve Ballmer as chief executive at the dominant producer of software for desktops and laptops, which has faltered in making the transition to the fast-growing mobile phone and tablet markets. But Mulally formally pulled out of the running on Tuesday, telling the Associated Press he would remain at Ford through 2014. It was unclear whether Mulally's withdrawal from consideration was his decision or Microsoft's.
