Rice says candidates should appear interested in foreign policy

(CNN) - In a week when Herman Cain said he was “not supposed to know anything about foreign policy,” the most recent Republican secretary of state said candidates needed to at least to have a symbolic interest in America’s foreign affairs.

“First of all, a potential president has to know the role of the United States of America and that it's an exceptional role, that we have, in fact, been willing to bear a lot of burdens over the last 60 plus years in order to promote a balance of power favor that favors freedom,” Condoleezza Rice said in an interview airing Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
