Could a cabinet position be in Condoleezza Rice’s future?

August 29, 2012

The former secretary of state, who was seated with Mitt Romney and his family at the GOP convention Tuesday night, offered a standard "I-like-my-current-job" response when the topic of whether she'd consider a place in Romney's cabinet (should he win) came up in a Wednesday morning interview with Fox News:

“I want Mitt Romney to be elected president. That’s why I am here. That’s why I am out trying to help. But I am a very happy Stanford professor, and I intend to be one for the foreseeable future. After all, I’ve been Secretary of State. I love foreign policy. I don’t love politics, I love policy. When you’ve had a chance to be America’s chief diplomat, there’s nothing else you want to do in that regard.”

Rice will address the convention Wednesday evening.
