In an interview with Ozy Media, the former secretary of state also said more questions need to be answered about the deadly 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, though she argued the issue could be approached in a less partisan way.

Condoleezza Rice kicks off California Republican convention, calls for strong U.S. leadership in Ukraine

(CNN) – Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice spoke at the annual California Republicans convention Saturday as the party faces an uphill battle in a state that has turned more and more blue.

Some speculated Rice would run in the Republican presidential primaries in 2008, but she wasn't interested. She left George W. Bush's White House in 2009 and returned to Stanford University in Palo Alto, California, as a political science professor.

As a featured speaker at the California Republican Party luncheon in Burlingame, Rice touched on many issues central to the Republican’s party’s future – from economic inequality and education, to foreign policy and military strength.
