(Newser) – Condoleezza Rice gave an unequivocal "no," this morning when asked if she'd be Mitt Romney's running mate—despite polls showing she's the most popular pick for the job. "Charlie, I didn't run for student council president," Rice told Charlie Rose on CBS' This Morning. "I don't see myself in any way in elected office." "I love policy. I'm not particularly fond of politics."

Rose pressed further. Was she saying she'd turn Romney down if he asked? "I'm saying there is no way that I will do this, because it's really not me. … Romney needs to find someone who wants to run with him." Rice also used the appearance to criticize President Obama's foreign policy. "We need a greater, more assertive America," she said. "We really do need to have a view. It cannot be the lowest common denominator view of the international community." (Read more Condoleezza Rice stories.)
