(CNN) – Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on Tuesday shot down speculation that she could appear on the GOP presidential ticket with Mitt Romney.
"I didn't run for student council president. I don't see myself in any way in elected office. I love policy. I'm not particularly fond of politics," she said on CBS's "This Morning."

While the former Bush official had largely stayed out of the 2012 race this year, Rice made a speech at a retreat for Romney supporters and donors this weekend in Utah, a little less than a month after she endorsed the presumptive GOP nominee.
She also hosted her first Washington fund-raiser Monday night in support of ShePAC, a super PAC dedicated to helping women running for office.
But despite her recent political forays, Rice forcefully closed the door on a potential gig as Romney's vice presidential pick, saying she simply was not interested.
"I'm saying there is no way that I will do this, because it's really not me. I know my strengths, and Gov. Romney needs to find someone who wants to run with him," Rice said, adding she'll support his decision.
Pressed on whether she would turn down an offer, Rice argued it was a hypothetical situation unlikely to come true.
"It's not going to happen," she said.
