WASHINGTON — Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice Tuesday declared to an audience that she doesn't miss being a player in world affairs, saying "it's nice to be out of the pressure cooker."

Rice told NBC's "Today" show that when she heard breaking news, "I can say now, oh, isn't that interesting, and I don't have to do anything."

Rice also said that she doesn't talk regularly with her successor, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, telling the network that "when you're in that job, you really don't need people chirping from the outside." She did say Clinton "knows where to find me, and a couple of times she has found me."

Rice is promoting her new book, Condoleezza Rice: A Memoir of My Extraordinary, Ordinary Family and Me.
