Condoleezza Rice wants it known: She is still not interested in being vice president.
Sean McCormack, her spokesman, today tried to dampen speculation that erupted Sunday after Dan Senor, a GOP political operative, claimed on ABC’s “This Week” that Rice was “actively, actually in recent weeks, campaigning” for the job. Peppered with questions at the regular State Department briefing, McCormack reiterated that Rice wants to return to Stanford University, where she is a tenured professor.
“I think what she is considering is focusing on her work as Secretary of State because — you may have missed it — but there’s actually quite a bit to do,” McCormack said. “There’s quite a bit left to do here as secretary of State.”
