WASHINGTON (AP) — Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is trying to tamp down any speculation she could be Mitt Romney’s vice presidential running mate.

Rice tells “CBS This Morning” she’s not interested in joining Romney, who has more than enough delegates to win the presidential nod at the party convention in Tampa.

Rice says, quote, “I didn’t run for student council president. I don’t see myself in any way in elective office.”

Rice also says “there is no way that I will do this because it’s really not me. I know my strengths and weaknesses.” She says Romney will pick a strong running mate and she’ll support the ticket.

Rice says that Romney will bring “first and foremost an understanding” of the nature of the United States’ role in the world.”
