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.
