Responding to rumors that she might get a vice presidential nod from Mitt Romney further down the campaign trail, Condoleezza Rice said on Tuesday that she would not accept an offer to share the ticket with the former Massachusetts governor.

The former Secretary of State said on Fox News's Fox and Friends that, though she believes the 2012 ticket is going to be "terrific" for the Republican Party, politics is not her “strong suit.”

“I think we should go another direction and find somebody who really wants it,” Rice said. “How many ways can I say it? Not me.”
