Rice again rules out 2008 run for president

Not even a vote of confidence from Laura Bush can change US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice's mind about running for president in 2008. Before leaving for Africa, the first lady predicted the United States soon would have a female president - a Republican, and maybe even Rice. In the year since becoming secretary of state, Rice has repeatedly dismissed the notion of running for the Republican nomination to succeed her current boss, President George W. Bush.
